Winterstick Mooring & Repairs

Pioneer provides complete spring installation and winter removal mooring services as mandated by local Harbor Commissions. For instance, Dartmouth MA authorities require boaters to have their moorings in place for the summer season no later than June 1st and removed by October 31st. In Wareham sticks can go on after Sept.15th and all moorings must now have a winterstick put on or risk being removed by HM. In New Bedford any mooring without a stick is removed by the HDC. Towns are starting to realize that  mooring top gear left in during the winter defeats the purpose of inspection programs.

However, winter sticks can be installed by us after October 1st if your boat is already off the mooring. Pioneer’s all-inclusive professional spring and winter services consist of…

  • Pendant & buoy removal
  • Install premium winter stick
  • Pendant & fittings inspection
  • Mooring & gear power washing
  • Buoy ID lettering paint touch-up
  • Indoor mooring and gear storage
  • Spring gear repair service as needed

Service Warranty: If your mooring is moved due to ice, we’ll try to find it at no extra charge!
