Spring Launch - $Free with your "Big Boat Winterize Package" (for Larger Non-Non trailered Boats Only)

Although the Spring Launch is included with your "Big Boat" winterize package, the boat must be "summerized" (previously run and ready for launch) previous to launch to insure a flawless launch. This can be done by the boat owner or we also offer that service that includes a safety check of all systems (see ""BEST" Spring Commissioning & Summerization Package"). This "Spring Launch" is a basic launch with our hydraulic trailer at the city launch ramp. We will remove boat from stands and back into water and help with departure. Boat owner must be present and meet at marina before we load boat onto trailer and head to boat ramp. A reschedule fee of $50 will be charged if a scheduled launch is cancelled. If boat owner is late and we are "standing by" to load boat there will be a late fee calculated at $100 per half hour (2 men & equipment). We do not launch boats on Saturdays or Sundays after 10am. Boat owners may want to choose the "Captains Launch" to meet their schedule. We will launch you boat previous to your arrival and stage it at our marina or slip it at your marina (local) for an additional $175. We do not launch boats in the rain and we reserve the right to reschedule your launch if we see difficulties with weather, etc. 

Captain’s Launch ( Delivery To Your Slip or Temp Mooring at Miller's)(for all our storage customers) - $175.00

After we launch your boat we "Captain" it to our dock, or your dock (local marinas), and tie it up and plug it in (if needed) and cover it back up to await your arrival. If your schedule prevents you from meeting us for your launch at a specific time during normal business hours then this "Captain’s Launch" is the answer. This is a more flexible option to receive your boat especially if weather is a concern, scheduling conflicts, or you need an off-hours pick up. Boat can be moored for up to 3 days at our marina, after that a $50 a day mooring charge will be charged. All services must be paid in full before we launch your boat.

Launch or Trailer Boat Pick Up Dates

I would like to schedule a launch of my boat or pick up my trailer boat on one of the following days.

Choice #1 Day and Time , 2024 at time: (No launches after 10am Saturday and None Sunday)

Choice #2 Day and Time , 2024 at time: (No launches after 10am Saturday and None sunday)

Choice #3 Day and Time , 2024 at time: (No launches after 10am Saturday and None sunday)

I understand that the marina will call me and verify the dates and any further details and do their best to meet the dates

I (boat owner) understand if the weather is bad, scheduling conflicts, equipment breakage, or things beyond the control of Miller’s Westerman’s Marina may hinder the exact launch dates and I remain somewhat flexible. The winter storage package ends on May 15th and summer storage charges start. Thus is, unless we have rescheduled your launch and moved your launch day beyond May 15th. and/or are performing services on your boat. Note: If a scheduled launch day is missed or not cancelled 48hrs prior to scheduled launch by you the customer a $50 fee will be charged. Thus if it was an acceptable day to launch to be determined by Miller’s Westerman’s Marina.

I have elected to go with a "Captains Launch" ($175) option and would like my boat to be launched and docked at my slip or temporarily moored at Miller's. I understand Miller's will call to verify dates and slip location. Choose this option if can't make a specific date and need some flexibility on pick up etc.

I am flexible on my launch date or trailer boat pick up and will leave it up to Miller’s Westerman’s Marina to service and/or launch my boat in a timely manor this spring. Miller’s Westerman’s Marina will contact boat owners on scheduling
