MIAMI BEACH MARINA DOCKAGE
Make sure that you have all your docking arrangements at the Miami Beach Marina. Please know that ALL MELGES 32s will be docked on the same dock, in the same location at the marina. Download The MBM Form required for securing your dockage and trailer parking.

TRAILER PARKING & CONTAINER LOAD/OFFLOAD
As in years past, trailers and containers will be located in the side parking lot at Miami Beach Marina.

If you have a container that needs to be loaded/unloaded, please contact Herb Reese via email for full coordination.

The crane will be in place to unload containers on February 24, and again to load on March 10. The crane for load out will be on site Monday March 10th. Loading will start at 0800. This will allow shippers to avoid the afternoon rush hour. Be prepared to arrive when the crane is in operation and are positioned parallel to the road, so that they can be lifted on a truck easily for departure, either from the road or with truck and crane close to the entrance of parking. 

Be aware that the asphalt parking lot is soft and damages easily. All containers should be off-loaded and loaded with crane. No one wants to get into having to repair a parking lot.

Charges per lift for a 20ft container will be in the region of 300 dollars.

FURTHER INFORMATION
If anyone needs further assistance, please contact IM32CA Admin, Joy Dunigan via email, or on cell at +1 (912) 398-5776.
