Burnt Store Isles Boat Club

BSIBC began in 1989 with 52 Charter Members, as a boating club for residents of Burnt Store Isles, in Punta Gorda, FL.  BSIBC promotes safe boating, furthering our boating and marine education, supporting our law enforcement agencies, protecting our marine environment and enjoying good fellowship among the boating and non-boating members of Burnt Store Isles, Fl.

A Note from the Vice Commodore - Nick Hay


As a yacht broker for one of the local brokerages here in Punta Gorda I meet with a number of new boat purchasers almost on a daily basis. Many times, I've been asked for my advice on how folks can get education on boating so that they can feel safer and more proficient, thus making boating more enjoyable.

It is also my belief that even experienced boaters, like the BSIBC membership, could benefit from continuing boating education. 

Because a portion of my responsibilities as Vice-Commodore is boating safety and education, I thought I should provide our membership information on the boating education classes available here in the local area.

Seawall Replacement Sequence Information

May 11 UPDATE
Marine Contracting Group (MCG) will be replacing damaged seawalls in Burnt Store Isles, which has been divided into BSI North (BSI-N) and BSI South (BSI-S). Marine Contracting Group has submitted a schedule to start work in the BSI- S section beginning Oct. 1.
The contractor must wait for delivery of a barge before beginning waterside work. The City is planning a workshop prior to October to discuss and answer any questions for the seawall replacements in Burnt Store Isles. Residents will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with designated Punta Gorda Canal Maintenance employees to discuss their individual seawall issues.

The current seawall replacement sequence information can be found on the City's website at http://ci.punta-gorda.fl.us/government/public-works/storm-related-seawall-failures

 

Weather station for Peace River Marker 4

The Weather Station is up and running!!!

After many months of frustrating technical issues, bad weather, and Hurricane Irma Ron Jones and company have completed the installation of our on-the-water weather station. The station, funded in part by a MAC grant, is located on Marker 4. 

To access the information go to The Punta Gorda Boaters Alliance web page (boat2puntagorda.org) and click on the "Current Wx" tab and follow the directions. The weather (wind speed, direction, humidity, gusts, rain, etc.) is updated every 15 minutes. This is the ONLY on-the-water weather station on Charlotte Harbor.

 

The Punta Gorda Boaters Alliance has applied for a second grant from the Marine Advisory Committee to install a second weather station on Marker 2. We should be able to install this second station sometime in October or November of this year.

It's the law!

Welcome to the Burnt Store Isles Boat Club web site.  We are a group of people that reside in Burnt Store Isles and share common interests in boating and social events.  While our primary focus is boating, both cruising and fishing, we do have many social events.  We provide information for our members that relate to our waterways and provide information from other boating related entities.  Take the time to surf our website.  There is a vast amount of information available that is updated regularly.

 You do not have to own a boat to belong to the Club.  We encourage those without boats to join those that do for many of our cruises.  For those that fish, we have within the Boat Club, a Fishing Club.  They hold regular meetings and frequently bring in speakers.  We are a very friendly group of people that enjoy boating and getting together.

If you are a member of this community, please consider joining our great organization.  We live in one of the nicest estuaries in the country that boasts great boating and fishing, to say nothing of our proximity to the Gulf Islands and the Gulf of Mexico.  Click to read "member benefits"
