Marina chain offers storage to avoid Gulf oil spill

Florida's Loggerhead Club and Marina is offering boaters a chance to get their vessels out of the water and into dry storage safely without signing a lease as concerns grow over the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

"This oil slick poses a significant threat to any boats left at a wet dock," the company said in a release. "Oil can permanently stain the white gelcoat of a boat's hull. It can also cause problems if the oil is sucked into a boat's operating system. Insurance companies are now recommending that boaters remove their boats from any water that could be affected by the spill.

"As Florida severely lacks adequate dry storage space to handle a mass influx of vessels, Loggerhead Club and Marina is offering boaters a plan of action now," the company added.

Loggerhead Club and Marina has 12 locations across Florida: Aventura, Daytona Beach, Hollywood, Jupiter, Lake Okeechobee, Lantana, Miami, Palm Beach Gardens, Riviera Beach, South Lantana, St. Petersburg and Vero Beach.

The Loggerhead Club and Marina brand is owned by Seven Kings Holdings Inc., which is headquartered in Jupiter, Fla.
