May 2016   
 
Hello MRA Members and Associates,
 
Well, this is the first of my pinch-hitting duties for the President.  Most of you know that I spent nearly two decades managing ocean marinas in Long Beach and for the past 2+ years have been managing lake resorts in Central Cali.  This has given me a tremendous perspective of the various issues and opportunities with respect to our industry, and has underscored the value of belonging to our association.
 
The beginning of summer was always a special time in Long Beach, as we had yacht club openings and the readying of our customers' vessels for the summer.  At lake and river resorts, the beginning of summer has a larger meaning as most of our facilities are seasonal, and in many instances the activity is very limited except in the summer.  This summer portends to be better than the recent past, since we received rainfall, particularly in the north.  In addition, although the country and State are not out of the economic malaise, it feels as if the economy is stronger than it has been in the recent past, which is positive.
 
Your Board has been putting the final touches on the 45th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show.  If you do not know, it is at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines - a beautiful hotel in a wonderful town.  We have named this conference "Navigating the Future," which we believe is relevant because no matter what happens in November, there are definitely changes coming.  
 
Hope to see you in October.
 
Mark Sandoval
Vice President
  
Halfway Through and So Fair So Good!

Another milestone reached in the legislative process and time for another newsletter article.  We have just passed the deadline for bills to pass out of their policy committee hearings and now bills move to either the house floor or to a fiscal committee.  This is an important time because these first hearings on the policy is where the merits of the bills get discussed and, as such, some move on while others stall in the process.  While there are hundreds of bills moving through the process, we are tracking a few dozen and have specific interest in just a few.

The most exciting bill on the horizon is SCA 7 (Huff).  This bill would provide constitutional protections for the Harbors and Watercraft Revolving Fund.  These are monies that are paid by boaters, in the form of gas taxes, and are supposed to be used for boating purposes.  However, as anyone who has read my reports over the years, this fund has been under continual assault by the Legislature to be used for other purposes.  This measure would put in the state constitution specific language that would prevent these takings.

This constitutional amendment was introduced as part of a much larger conversation on transportation funding.  I won't bore you with all the details, but transportation bond funds are running out, lower gas prices mean less road tax money, and cars are getting better gas mileage; all of this means fewer dollars for our roads.  In response the Governor, legislative leaders and stakeholders are engaged in discussions on how to solve this problem.  Senator Huff introduced SCA 7 so it will be in place to be considered as part of this larger discussion.

These discussions are complex as there are many potential outcomes, and any solution will take a 2/3 vote, so the chances of success is an uphill battle.  However, should a plan come together, we are in position for a possibly very good outcome.

State Budget
I spend a lot of time talking about boating specific issues in the state budget, but sometimes it is good to know how our state is doing in terms of its general fiscal health.  Here is a snapshot of the big picture of the budget via a quote from the Legislative Analysts' Office, the non-partisan office that reviews fiscal actions of the Legislature and the Governor, on the "May Revision" of the state budget:

"In the May Revision, the Governor proposes ending 2016-17 with $8.5 billion in total state General Fund reserves. This level of reserves is about $1.7 billion lower than the level proposed by the Governor in January, which largely reflects a downward revision in revenue estimates since then, as well as increased required spending on K-14 education. Nevertheless, estimated tax revenues continue to exceed proposed spending in 2016-17, which would facilitate total reserves ending 2016-17 at $4 billion above the level assumed in the state's 2015-16 budget plan."

I think it is fair to say that while growth is not vigorous, the state remains fiscally healthy, and that can only be good for protecting boating programs.

AB 2092 (Frazier):  Commercial Vessels: Abandoned Watercraft Abatement Fund
This is a bill that we are watching very closely as it is a classic example of a "double-edged sword."  The bill expands access to the grant program that funds the removal of abandoned vessels to abandoned "commercial" vessels.  In current law only recreational vessels have access to the program.  Some of our members support this bill while others are opposed or have concerns.

On the one hand, there is concern that expanding the program will reduce funds available for the core mission, which is the abatement of recreational vessels, while in contrast commercial vessels can also be a hazard to navigation and, therefore, should be removed.
We have been in discussion with the author's office and the sponsors and will continue to stay in close contact and monitor its progress to ensure it is not amended in a manner that is objectionable to all of our members.

Other Bills
We continue to monitor dozens of other bills that have some general interest or could be amended to be of concern, from how a bill that limits stakeholder communication with the Coastal Commission to a bill that will evaluate the need for an "Inner Coast Conservancy," and many others.  Our leadership has also decided to support several bills, two of which continue to move through the process.  Those bills include:  1) A bill to allow body contact on Bear Lake Reservoir. 2) A bill supporting the restoration of the Salton Sea.

Final Thoughts
Right now we are not in the middle of any major crisis, but the legislative process is like the Army: periods of waiting followed by extreme conflict.  The time to prepare for the next crisis is now and each of our members can play a role by getting to know your Legislator.  They often have events in your area or you can invite them to your facility or to the next Chamber of Commerce event or Rotary meeting, as examples. 

The former Speaker of the House or Representative said:  "All politics are local," and that is very true.  If you have a relationship with your Legislator, that might come in very handy when we are looking for votes during a crisis.

We are doing our part by conducting what we are calling the "California Boating Congress."  Our first event was earlier this year and we are planning on conducting the event each year in the spring.  It is an event with boating related speakers in the morning, followed by meetings with Legislators in the afternoon.  Our goal is to raise the profile of boating and its industries with Sacramento policy makers, and you can be part of it by participating in the CBC and getting active in your community!

Are your marine facilities and operations compliant with NFPA 303 standards and NEC 555 codes?

The Marine Recreation Association sponsored a series of Regional Training Seminars throughout California this May and June covering the dynamics of marine electrical systems and related electrolysis, corrosion, and shock hazards. Educating marine operators, employees, and guests about the complications of electricity in a marine environment is critical to minimizing hazards and the potential liability posed for marina owners, harbormasters, and managers.

The seminars have been presented by Malcolm Morgan, an ABYC Certified Marine Electrician with more than thirty-five years of experience in marine electrical and corrosion control systems, and principle with Malcolm Morgan Marine / M3, in Sausalito, California. His long career in the marine industry, includes affiliations with ABYC, NFPA, NAMS, and SAMS, and experience working with many Bay Area and Delta marine facilities, and state and federal agencies.

The MRA Regional Training Seminar, "Corrosion, Electrolysis, and Shock Hazards in the Marina", was presented by Malcolm on May 24th at the Richmond Marina Bay Yacht Harbor to a full house of marine industry professionals. "Understanding the building codes and regulations governing the operation, inspection, and maintenance of marine electrical systems is critical in today's business environment," said Malcolm. "The National Fire Protection Association - NFPA 303 - standards, and the NEC, Article 555 building codes, lay out the wiring and circuitry specifications, and standard maintenance, inspection, and repair parameters, but it is the responsibility of the marine facility operators to implement and comply with the various codes and standards."

The classroom session of the seminar covered some of the basic NEC 555 regulations, including the proper wiring and grounding of AC current, and the requirement for 100mA GFCI breakers on all dock feeders OR on each branch circuit or power pedestal to protect against dangerous ground faults, and other current leakage and polarity problems. The requirement for annual inspections and testing of polarity and ground integrity of electrical systems by all marine facility operators, under NFPA 303 standards, was emphasized along with related maintenance and repair regulations. The seminar included an in-depth review of critical factors (both man-made and natural) that could lead to various electric shock hazards, electrolysis, and corrosion problems, and the dynamics that vary between fresh and salt water environments. Bonding systems, and other on-board fault protection systems were also discussed, including the new requirement for ELCI breakers to be installed on new boats per ABYC standards.
 
Malcolm also noted that in one case the marina manager was personally named in a recent electrical drowning incident, and recommended the development of a "Harbor Electrical Safety Plan" with the following minimum components.
  • Educate all staff to become familiar with NFPA 303 Standards, and the required testing tools, inspections, troubleshooting, and record keeping protocol.
  • Notify berth holders and guests of new federal guidelines and enforcement of NFPA Standards requiring proper shore power cords and other marina policies
  • Notify divers and other marine workers of new policies and procedures requiring that they check in with the marina office, utilize proper GFI protection on all power tools, and unplug vessel shore power cords before entering water.
  • Implement a strict "No Swimming" policy for all visitors near boats and docks.
  • Acquire and utilized the appropriate electrical testing meters and tools.
The classroom session included an overview of different testing meters and tools, and a brief demonstration of the difference in electrical conductivity between fresh and salt water, which clearly illustrated the increased danger of electrical shock drowning in fresh water. Based on OSHA information, a mere 30 milliamps of electrical current in fresh water can cause heart contractions and drowning.

The afternoon session moved out onto the Marina Bay Yacht Harbor docks where Malcolm reviewed recommended record keeping protocol, and the use of Sure-Test 164/165 and Hioki Clamp test meters. Three different power centers were tested, including one where the shore power cord had been flagged by the marina after investigating a ground-fault indication on the dock electrical system. Actual hands-on testing was done to familiarize all of the participants with the use of the test meters and related procedures.

Ian Turner, Manager at Bair Island Marina in Redwood City, stated that he felt the seminar was very valuable, and gave him a better understanding of the electrical issues and complaints he has dealt with over the years.

The Northern California seminars held in May were close to sold out, and limited space is available for the June sessions in Southern California. Attendance is limited to 25 attendees at the following scheduled dates and locations, and early registration is recommended:
 
  • Tuesday, June 7, 2016 (9 am - 2 pm) at Island Palms Hotel & Marina

Today is the LAST DAY to Save on Early Registration for Marina Dredging: Planning, Permitting, and Management Regional Training

Attracting and keeping quality employees has taken on a level of importance far beyond the tasks of human resources. Business leaders understand that hiring and retaining high-quality, highly engaged employees is essential to the overall success of the organization. But understanding is just the first step. Executing a successful talent strategy requires examining all aspects of a company's work culture.  And creating a winning work culture that drives individuals to join and to stay is the ultimate goal.
 
Ahhh, for the days of hanging up a Help Wanted sign and waiting for the applicants to arrive. In an improved economy, where a smaller pool of potential employees has more options, job opportunities must stand out.  Millennials, those 18 - 30 year olds who are the target market, are seeking more than 'just a job'. How to creatively market open positions is key. Add to the mix the need to find these recruits 'where they are' means becoming savvy in social media and other less traditional recruitment tools. 
 
And if recruitment is a challenge, then how to describe retention? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, millennials switch jobs an average of seven times between ages 18 and 28. They see changing jobs as a quest for the perfect career opportunity and they see their 20's as a perfect time to search for it. Seeking ways to engage the workforce and have them not only want to stay but to grow into leadership positions must be a top priority.
 
But wait, don't create that LinkedIn profile or buy a pool table just yet. The place to really begin is to look within. Before a company can become creative in its recruitment and retention programs it must first determine its value to its employees. Without leadership recognizing who they are and what they want to stand for, they cannot know the type of employee they really need and how to engage them. Determining one's true culture is good business practice for a myriad of reasons, one simply being it is what today's employees are demanding.
 
Glassdoor, the website designed for employees to review and rank employers recently posted the employee's choice 50 Best Places to Work 2016. Award winners were determined using feedback from the millions of reviews shared on the site through the past year. According to Dawn Lynn, VP of corporate affairs at Glassdoor, the common denominator of the top vote getters is not providing extravagant perks; it's providing a winning culture.
 
Whatever the company culture is, be it collaborative, casual, innovative or traditional, it's the unspoken knowledge that #1 - people come first. And it clearly emanates from the top and permeates down through the organization. It can't be lip service. If a people-first culture is not authentic, candidates and certainly employees will know it and any chance for long-term employee engagement and retention will be lost.
 
Job seekers today have choices and are looking for more than a paycheck. Their best opportunities encompass a company culture that highlights the employee's value. How that value is perceived begins ahead of the recruitment process and continues long after the hire.

Karie will be presenting the topic "Attracting and Keeping Quality Employees" on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at the 45th Annual MRA Educational Conference & Trade Show that will be held at Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines.

Buying Boat Insurance: The Fine Print
Check Your Policy for These Six Coverages
 

As boat owners prep for the season, it's time to dust off the insurance policy and grab a magnifying glass to read the fine print. Unlike auto or homeowner's insurance, recreational boat insurance has distinct coverages that can perplex and leave boaters scratching their head. What do you need to know? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) takes a look at the fine print on six of the most important coverages.

The consequential damage fine print: Half of all sinkings occur at the dock when some small part below the waterline fails. However, these parts - an outdrive bellows, for example - most often fail due to "wear, tear, and corrosion" or a lack of maintenance, so the policy won't pay for a new outdrive bellows. But here's the rub: as a consequence of the failed bellows, your boat is now sunk and likely a total loss. Who pays for that? That's why you need "consequential damage" coverage that pays for losses that often start with a failed part that may be excluded under the policy. The small inexpensive part that failed may not be covered but most importantly the rest of the repairs or total loss will be. One caveat: this consequential damage coverage often applies only to specific types of losses. For example, the immediate consequential damage resulting from any fire, explosion, sinking, demasting, collision or stranding.

The fuel-spill liability fine print: In addition to your policy's standard liability coverage for physical damage or bodily injury to a third party, fuel-spill liability protects you from claims for cleanup or third party damage to the accidental discharge of oil or fuel that can occur in a sinking, fire, collision, or grounding. Some policies only pay the costs associated with a fuel spill up to the policy's set limit of boating liability coverage. A better policy separates out fuel-spill liability and provides coverage up to the maximum amount you can be held liable for under federal law, which today is a whopping $939,800.

The on water towing fine print: Many boat insurance policies today offer some kind of on water towing endorsement that provides a level of towing and assistance for routine breakdowns or soft ungroundings. Know how you will be able to use that coverage - who provides the service and do they have 24-hour dispatch service to call for assistance? At what locations in the country will you have to pay for a tow out of pocket and be reimbursed? Having a separate on water towing membership plan can be a better bet as it can offer greater service levels, coverage options, direct billing so you can leave your credit card in your wallet, and priority towboat service on busy Saturday afternoons and evenings.

The salvage coverage fine print: When fires, sinkings, shed roof collapses or running up on a shoal damages your boat, you end up with a "salvage" situation. If the boat is not a total loss and needs to be recovered and brought to a repair facility, costs can escalate quickly. Most boaters assume the cost of raising or moving the boat to safe location is covered by their policy, but some marine insurers will subtract salvage costs from the insured value of the boat, reducing the funds available to repair the boat or the amount paid in the event of a total loss. Also in case of a total loss, you may receive a check for the boat's insured value but only a small percentage of the insured value, just 5 or 10%, to pay for salvage costs, which may not cover the bill. That leaves your wallet short and you managing a potentially complex task. Better policies don't let you go it alone, and provide salvage coverage that is separate, but equal to the boat's hull value coverage.

The boat trailer fine print: Not all boat insurance policies automatically provide boat trailer coverage so be sure to check, and also find out if there are geographic limits on where you may trailer the boat. Note that if you have an accident while towing, it is your boat policy that pays to repair or replace the trailer, but any third-party damage your trailer causes to property or injuries to people is covered under your auto policy.

The liability-only boat policy fine print: If you opt for a liability only policy make sure that it provides not only coverage for property damage and bodily injury to others, but that it also provides coverage for salvage and removal of wreck, and that a separate coverage is available for fuel spill incidents.

It's time to dust off the boat's insurance policy and grab a magnifying glass to read the fine print. Unlike auto or homeowner's insurance, recreational boat insurance has distinct coverages that can perplex boaters. What do you need to know?

USS Arizona Memorial to Get New Landing Dock from Bellingham Marine

Bellingham Marine and dock system engineer, Redpoint Structures, developed an innovative dock concept for the new ferry landing at the USS Arizona Memorial. The value engineered design provided a viable option for the National Park Service that met their budgetary needs.

The massive modules were loaded on trucks and transported from Bellingham's manufacturing facility in Lynden, Wash. to the Port of Seattle where they were loaded on a barge and shipped to Hawaii.

The Ferry Landing dock at the USS Arizona Memorial is 20 feet wide by 105 feet long and welcomes nearly 2 million visitors each year.

The original design for the dock called for a single piece hollow caisson structure with ballast chambers. Because of its size, the dock would have to be cast on site making it difficult to maintain tight quality control standards. The caisson design was expensive and would require regular maintenance.

Bellingham Marine and Redpoint reviewed the dock's required performance specifications and proposed an alternative design. Bellingham's alternate design called for nine concrete match-cast, heavily reinforced modules. Each module measures 20' wide x 11' 8" long x 7'9" deep. The units have a foam core and are fully encased in concrete on all sides to provide the required strength and durability.

A method of post-tensioning will be used to connect the individual modules to create a solid structure. The match-cast, post-tensioned design creates a structure that is extremely rigid and acts as a solid, single piece structure.

Bellingham Marine's dock design provides a number of benefits including:
  • The ability to manufacture the dock in a quality controlled facility
  • Elimination of the need for ballast chambers
  • Little to no long term maintenance
  • A significant reduction in the time and cost required to manufacture the system
  • The ability to add on to the dock in the future
The design was accepted by the National Park Service. Bellingham Marine started manufacturing in December.

A number of innovative manufacturing processes were required in order to cast and finish the massive modules. Each module was cast in two stages. Picking pipes were strategically placed to ensure the 37.5-ton modules could be properly lifted and placed without damage.

On April 22nd the modules were shipped from Washington state to Hawaii. They arrived on site on May 9th where they wait installation.  June 14 - 24, the National Park Service will close the floating memorial and the new dock will be installed.
