Berthing Licenses.


A person may not berth a vessel in the Marina without having secured a berthing license from the Harbormaster. Berthing licenses are subject to the Rules and Regulations of the San Francisco Marina Small Craft Harbor (“Marina Rules”) as adopted by the Commission, and any subsequent amendments thereto. All berthing licenses, regardless of when granted, constitute a privilege and are not the property of the bertholder. This provision is declaratory of existing law.


The Harbormaster may renew berthing licenses annually in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Marina Rules. There shall be no limit to the number of times that the Harbormaster may renew a berthing license.


The Commission may decide at any time to amend, suspend or terminate the berthing license program for the San Francisco Marina Small Craft Harbor, and the privileges bertholders derive from the program.
