Join the SMLBA

Why should I join the SMLBA?

The mission of the Smith Mountain Lake Boating Association has taken the initiative to create this organization, assemble essential rudimentary information and present it in a format to benefit Smith Mountain Lake boaters. To this, we have donated over $600,000 over the past 16 years. Most has gone to the Marine Fire and Rescue Department. This has helped our lake community by lowering insurance rates and improving response time.

Next, funds to the Sail and Power Squadron who give boating safety classes required to operate water craft and youth safety classes to make our children safer around the water.

Gas Discount

The discount gas program is provided by a select group of marinas who have chosen to participate to help support recreational boating on Smith Mountain Lake. The discount program is available to all members in good standing.

The program will run from Memorial Day weekend through the end of September. The basic discount is 7 cents per gallon of gas off the pump price of gas purchased. To secure the discount, affix your SMLBA sticker to the windshield or side of the boat so it is visible to the marina employee during fueling. The sticker must be displayed on the boat and you must present your membership card to receive the discount.

Boating Purchases

There is also a 7% discount on boating purchases made from the marina store on purchases of $50 or more. Present the membership discount card at the time of purchase.

We are growing and need the support of our members.
