KYC Hoist Waiver and Release

Boats meeting weight and size requirements are permitted to use the hoist at KYC. Certain conditions:

  • the load limit of the hoist is 4,500 lbs.
  • a reservation for time must be made with the SDO/or its representative at least 24 hours in advance
  • A KYC representative will supervise or must be present for each hoist
  • all boats must be completely emptied or unloaded before hoisting out 
  • shipping trailers are only allowed on KYC grounds for the day of hoisting and must leave after the boat is loaded (same day)
  • this waiver must be signed and presented before hoisting 

I acknowledge and promise Kaneohe Yacht Club that:

All the information above is true and correct. My yacht is covered by a policy of hull insurance for its full insurable value and a policy of liability insurance which covers any claims by a third parties for damage, injury or death to persons or property.  I will maintain this insurance in full force during the haul-out.

I have received written approval from the KYC Port Captain and understand that that my vessel shall be promptly removed from the premises after being hauled.

I release, indemnify, defend and hold harmless Kaneohe Yacht Club, Pacific Cup Yacht Club, and all of their officers, directors, employees, agents and members from any and all liability, claims, damages and expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees) which arise from or relate to any of their actions or inactions in any way related to haul-out of my yacht or from anything which may occur while the yacht is out of the water at Kaneohe Yacht Club.

I am hauling out my yacht for transport preparation purposes only.  I agree that my yacht will be completely unloaded prior to haul and that the boat’s lifting bridle and attachment points have been approved by the Port Captain or his named representative.

I understand that by signing this agreement, I am giving up the rights which I might otherwise have against Kaneohe Yacht Club. I further understand, however, that Kaneohe Yacht Club permits the haul-out of members' yachts at the Kaneohe Yacht Club only as a service to its members and would not under any circumstances permit the haul-out of my yacht unless I sign and abide by this agreement.

Sign above
