A boat cannot be selected for a concurrent late return + early checkout, priority is given as first come, first served basis. Member shall have unlimited yearly reservations, however, a member may not have more than four advance reservations at any given time, two of which may be Saturday or Sunday, or Holiday reservations. Holidays are defined as Friday through Monday during the following: Memorial Day Weekend, Fourth of July Weekend, and Labor Day Weekend. Reservations may be scheduled up to six months in advance.

Selection of dates and boats are subject to availability and must be reserved by Member in accordance with these Rules. Scheduling will be handled on a first come, first served basis. Failure to use boats shall not relieve Member of any liability for payments due NCBC.
4. RESERVATIONS: Reservations may be made anytime up to 24-hours through our Online Reservation System. Within the 24-hour window, please call the Dockmaster at the requested location to check availability. NCBC reserves the right to substitute, alter, or cancel boats that are reserved or scheduled by a Member. If you anticipate arriving at the dock later than one hour after your scheduled reservation time, you must call the dock and alert them to your delayed arrival. If you fail to provide timely notification your reservation may be assigned to another member. Failure to cancel within a 48 hour period from the launch date will result in a warning. A second violation will result in weekend restrictions for an 6 week period.
5.ADDITIONAL MEMBERSHIP BOAT RESERVATION PRIVILEGES: Member shall have unlimited use of NCBC boats on an availability, stand-by, same-day usage basis, except on days when NCBC is closed. Member may call the dock manager on the morning of desired use to check availability. Boat availability is subject to weather and winter winterization periods, which will be at the discretion of the NCBC management staff. NCBC will be closed Mondays throughout the year, as well as the week of Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve through the first Tuesday after New Years Day.
6.BOAT USAGE PRIVILEGES: Before and after boating, a Member must complete the check out/check in procedures. Additionally, completion of the After Hours Certification is required for late return/ early launch. Fish may not be cleaned on board any NCBC boats. Fishing is not permitted on deck boats or other boats as designated by the Dock Manager. If the Member returns the boat excessively dirty which requires our Dockhands additional time to clean and/or delays another Member's reservation, the Member will first receive a friendly request to return the boat in a cleaner condition. If the Member receives a second request to return the boat in a cleaner condition, the Member will receive a $50 cleaning fee. If you are late returning a boat without selecting late drop off, NCBC may charge a late fee of $50.00 per half-hour increment. Water-sports activities such as water-skiing, knee boarding, wake boarding and tubing are only allowed from specific NCBC boats. If unsure, check with the reservationist or with your Dock Manager. Pets are allowed on NCBC boats but must be under proper control at all times. Any damage caused by a pet will be charged to the Member. NCBC reserves the right to refuse access of any aggressive animal. NCBC boats may not be used for any commercial purpose and are restricted from removal from Clinton Lake, KS.
7.RESPONSIBILITY FOR BOAT: The Member shall be solely and exclusively responsible for any loss or damage to NCBC boat and accessory equipment from the time that such boat and accessory equipment is furnished to Member up to and including the time of its proper check in to NCBC. At no time shall Member allow anyone other than a Member to operate any NCBC boat. By virtue of NCBC's “insert policy provider” insurance coverage, in which each Member is an additional insured, a Member's liability to NCBC is limited to the greater of either 2% of boat insured value or $2500.00 for each boat damaged per incident (plus sales tax per boat per incident). If alcohol/drugs are contributing factors in an accident there is no deductible, member is fully responsible. Any damage that occurs while a NCBC boat is in Member's possession will be noted and charged at check- in. However, some items, particularly damage to the engine (i.e., caused by entangling the prop in rope or fishing line, running the engine at high rpm after a problem occurs, etc.), may not be noticed at the time of check-in. If damage is discovered after check-in, and NCBC deems the Member to be responsible, the Member will be billed for all damage/cost incurred by NCBC to restore the NCBC boat to the same condition as originally delivered to Member. At NCBC's sole discretion, Member may be denied boat usage until payment is received for any damage to a NCBC boat. In addition, NCBC may require the Member to attend a meeting to discuss the damage, and NCBC, at its sole discretion, may take any action deemed necessary, including suspension or termination of membership. Members are responsible for full replacement cost of any damaged or lost accessories rented at the time of departure. Failure to report damage that occurred may result in revocation of membership. Invoices for damage are due upon receipt. Invoices not paid immediately are subject to a 1.5% finance charge per month.
8.TOWING: NCBC will be responsible for reasonable towing charges as defined by NCBC, unless it has been determined that the towing is necessitated by the Member's recklessness or ignorance (no beaching or grounding of vessels is permitted). Member is responsible for any towing charges outside the regularly accepted towing limit by the tow company in that geographic area. Towing rates are $150/ hr, with a one hour minimum.
9. INJURY AND DAMAGE TO PROPERTY: Member recognizes that the operation of any boat is a specialized activity that requires training and experience and has both obvious and non-obvious dangers associated with it. Member acknowledges that many such dangers produce risk of injury to Member, Member's passengers, and the public in general regardless of the training and experience of the operator of the boat and regardless of the proper maintenance and condition of the boat. Accordingly, Member knowingly accepts sole and exclusive responsibility at all times for the safety of all persons and property on board the NCBC boat, and all persons who may come in contact with the NCBC boat, including Member, Member's passengers and the public in general. For purposes of personal injury claims, a Member is deemed automatically to be additional assured on NCBC's Hull & Machinery and Protection & Indemnity policy(ies) subject to the Co-Assured Clause, and will be afforded the same coverage and protection afforded NCBC under such an insurance policy. MEMBER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT NCBC’S INSURANCE COVERAGE IS FOR THE MEMBER AND GUESTS ONLY WHILE THE MEMBER IS OPERATING (PILOTING) THE BOAT. INSURANCE COVERAGE DOES NOT APPLY IF ANY NON-MEMBER IS OPERATING A NCBC INSURED BOAT DURING AN ACCIDENT. MEMBER AGREES TO RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD NCBC, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ALL CLAIMS, LOSS, DAMAGE, EXPENSE (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEY'S FEES AND COSTS AND EXPENSES OF LITIGATION) FOR INJURY OR LOSS OF ANY SORT INCLUDING BODILY INJURY, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR OTHER LOSS OF ANY KIND OR NATURE WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, FORESEEN OR UNFORESEEN, PATENT OR LATENT ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE USE OR OPERATION OF AN NCBC BOAT IN VIOLATION OF THE MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT OR THESE RULES AND REGULATIONS. THIS RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION OF NCBC, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS SHALL EXTEND TO ANY INJURY OCCASIONED WHOLLY OR IN PART BY ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF NCBC, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS. Member further understands and acknowledges that NCBC is not responsible for death, injury or property loss or damages resulting from or arising out of (i) the acts or omissions of any third parties or (ii) Member’s operation of the boat and related water sport activities, including without limitation, swimming, diving, snorkeling, water-skiing, knee boarding, wake boarding and tubing. Only specific NCBC boats allow for these water-sports activities. The member shall hold NCBC harmless and shall indemnify NCBC against any claims by any persons arising from such water sport activities.
