Boat Registration&Launching

Updated May 2024 – supersedes all previous versions
The Boat Launch Link for appointments is located by clicking here: Launch
Appointments must be made at lease 24 hrs in advance
Please add to your contacts as all boat communication will come through this email.
If you need to launch your boat outside the appointment times or take it off the water please call Dave Gian (734-476-0370) or email
Before launching, all boats must have:
1. A current State of Michigan registration sticker and MC numbers installed (if applicable).
2. The property owner's lot number, posted on both sides of all boats including canoes, kayaks, etc.. Residents must provide their own stick-on numbers (stickers must be contrasting color and 3 inches high minimum).
     A. Condo site lots will have a C prefix (due to duplicate lot numbers)
3. A Twin Lakes sticker on all boats including paddleboats, canoes and kayaks. The stickers should be placed on both sides of the motor for power boats. (Contact Boat Launch Coordinator for stickers.)
4. Homeowners Association dues must be current to launch boats.
  • For April launching, dues must be paid by March 31st
  • For May launching, dues must be paid by April 30th
  • For June launching, dues must be paid by May 31st
  • No payments will be accepted at the boat launch dock
5. A completed Watercraft registration form.  Found here.  This form must be completed each year you have new registration stickers or you are launching a boat new to Tull Lake.
6. Boat and trailer clear of any invasive species.
7. Finally, this GoogleForm (here) must be completed to acknowledge your understanding and following of the Lake and Boating Rules. 
Failure to do any of the above will result in a loss of your launch time and will require you to reschedule.  
The launch restriction is linked to the lot number; no boat/pontoon may be launched under a different name that would be docked at your address/lot number.
Boats owned ONLY by property owners (no partnerships) shall be allowed on Tull Lake #1 or #2.
Boat Launching Safety
For your own safety, the TLIA & TLVA boards stress the following:
1. Do not stand or walk on the ramp below the water line because the algae makes it very slippery.
2. Do not stand behind the boat when the towing driver is backing the boat into the water because the driver cannot see you.
3. Be cautious when climbing into your boat on the ramp. Boat trailers are not designed for easy access to your boat from the ground.
4. Use common sense! Accidents can happen in an instant but their consequences can last a lifetime.
Launching of powerboats at the Community Beaches is PROHIBITED.  The launching site is at the South end of Tull Lake #2, near the water pump.   There is no subdivision launch or public access provided for Tull Lake #1 (small lake).

Residents can retrieve their boats starting from October 1st, and the gate will remain open until October 31st. Please make sure to collect your boat before the deadline.
