Boats on the beach
Motorboats cannot be launched from bathing beaches. Motorboats and water skiers must operate at a safe distance, at least 150 feet from the shoreline.
Popponesset homeowners only, may store a Sunfish on the beach if it is stored against a sea wall, but it must not be tied or locked to PBA stairs. Please remove all sailboats from the beach by Columbus Day in October in preparation for winter and the storm season. No other items such as inflatables, catamarans, kayaks, paddle-boards or personal belongings may be stored on our beaches.
We need to have a yearly inventory of sailboats that are stored on our beaches. In past years we have had to remove boats due to storms or need to notify owners when boats are washed onto other beaches. To register aboat stored at the beach:
- Fill out a current sailboat registration form
- Include a photo of your boat
- Bring your Registration Form to the Community House and pick up your Massachusetts Vessel ID Sticker
