The East Blue Hill Village Improvement Association owns and maintains the facilities at the village park and boat launch area. Fees collected are used to maintain and improve the ramp, access road, and the parking area, and to support the activities of the VIA. Users who keep their boats at the ramp or use the ramp during the season must register their watercraft and pay ramp fees.

General Rules Associated With Use of the Park and Ramp

Please be advised that use of the park and harbor ramp are entirely at YOUR OWN RISK and EBHVIA assumes NO LIABILITY for any property kept, left at or maintained at the town park. You are responsible for making certain that your property is kept in a safe location.

All dinghies and kayaks kept at the village park must have and exhibit a current sticker. Any boats or watercraft of any kind left at the park that do not display a current valid EBHVIA sticker will be considered abandoned, unclaimed or mislaid property and removed by EBHVIA from the park for safety reasons and to reduce obstruction and congestion.

 

Property removed from the park for failure to display current use stickers can be retrieved by contacting the EBHVIA and paying storage costs permitted by law. Maine law governing abandoned property will apply and EBHVIA assumes no liability for this property. Storage fees for unregistered or non-complying watercraft or other property (boat trailers, vehicles, equipment, etc.) will be imposed based on a current schedule of $5.00 per each linear foot of boat, trailer or property length/ per day or as may otherwise be charged by commercial storage companies.
