DIRECTIONS to the Amigos Boathouse & Yard …. from El Centro:

Starting from the Jardin in El Centro, follow Canal straight out of town (it changes its name, but no mind) pass the bus station, pass Immigration (both on the left).

Cross the railroad tracks and follow the signs to Otomi. (Go straight ahead on the cobblestone road not the paved road to the right).

Follow for about 2 miles. When the cobbles turn to dirt (at the entrance of Otomi) … you’re almost there.

Follow the dirt road to the end of the fence and arrive at the boathouse and yard on the right.


Rules and Practices for Boathouse and Boatyard Use

Amigos members in good standing who store boats in the boathouse (or yard) will be given a combination to the locks and are required to follow these Rules and Practices.
Responsibilities (of those with who have the combination)
  1. The two major responsibilities are:  a) security of the premises and contents, b) second, safety of users.  Access by way of the combination is for your use only. Do not share it with anyone.
  2.  Always lock the boathouse and boatyard when you leave.
Exception: unless you have a specific agreement with another member who stores his/her boat or an Amigos volunteer guide or coach who is on the premises and accepts that this responsibility has been passed to him/her. When in doubt, lock up.
      4. Fill out the LOG on the clip board in the boathouse for yourself and any others with you.
      5. Report anything which appears to you to be out of place or questionable in the boathouse, boatyard, or with individuals on the   premises. Either call the information to Mike Lambert at 415 114-4882, his designate, or email: If in doubt, report it! 

Please know that failure to follow these few responsibilities may result in withdrawal of access privileges. As a member who has access under these terms you have a right to speak out your concerns.
