This year’s Lift-Out will take place on Saturday Oct 14th, starting at 8:00am.
As per previous years, 2 cranes will be in operation, with all boats requiring lift-out being lifted on that day.
Due to expected dredging and fuel tank replacements in the Fall 2023/Spring 2024 (either activity requiring access to the marina office laneway), boats normally stored on the East Wall will be stored on the North Wall and South Parking Lot this year.

If you were lifted out by KYC last year, you will receive a Lift Request email which you can submit to book your lift.
If you were not lift out by KYC last year and expect to require a lift this year, please send an email specifying your contact info, boat and cradle details by sending an email to: Lifts@kyc.ca
