Website Improvements

Hello, everyone! We are currently working on several improvements to the website. One of which is creating a shortcut for PayPal on the website. This shortcut will allow members of the BSBIA to pay their dues electronically this year.

We are also working on a new feature for the website, a historical section! It has been decided that due to the fantastic history of our bay, a history page will be put into the works! As such, a formal request is being put forward that if you have any old photographs, memories, or even maps, please send them to the web admin at bmaslyn1@gmail.com. I will be working on getting this page started around the beginning of June.

Please look for these updates soon; the PayPal will be available before the annual BSBIA meeting in June. Thank you! And as always, if you have any photographs you would like to see posted on the website, please forward them on to the web admin at bmaslyn1@gmail.com. That page will also be updated around the beginning of June.

Thank you!

Special State of Emergency declared along Lake Ontario in Wayne County

Officials in Wayne County have declared a special state of emergency for all Wayne County bays and harbors.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Steven LeRoy and Sheriff Barry Virts pursuant to Executive Law Article 2B declared the special state of emergency for Sodus Bay, Port Bay, East Bay, Blind Sodus Bay, Pultneyville Harbor and Bear Creek Harbor in Wayne County.


Effective Thursday at 12:01 am motorized boat traffic must operate at idle speed only — causing no wake on the county’s bays and harbors. The Wayne County bays and harbors are higher than normal, which has spurred serious flood threats along Lake Ontario.


Both said in a joint press release that “Although recent boat traffic on all the Wayne County bays and harbors has been minimal, increased boat traffic would create a hazardous situation, property damage and shore line erosion.”

Public safety concerns are floating debris and submerged obstructions, which are typically visible, according to the press release.

2017 Dues

​​BAD NEWS FOLKS. PLAN 2014 THAT THE IJC HAS ADOPTED IS IN EFFECT. HIGHER WATER IN THE SPRING AND LOWER WATER LEVELS IN THE FALL IS NOW WITH US. LAKE ONTARIO IS NOW TWO FEET HIGHER THAN LAST YEAR.

We will attempt to do emergency digs to minimize property damage under the scenario that high water, rain, and high winds are forecasted at the same time. This is the only way that we can prevent damage at a reasonable cost.

Please send in your 2017 dues of $150 as we have limited money for any more emergency digs.


Please mail dues to:
