Sailing Clubs: Dinghy Storage

I've noticed in a couple of locations where a sailing club with a large number of hauled out dinghys has been tagged as amenity=car_park: Long Eaton Sailing Club and Papercourt Lake Sailing Club.

I have not located a suitable alternative, perhaps because I have no idea what these areas are called.

Any comments, advice?

Re: Sailing Clubs: Dinghy Storage

Perhaps waterway=boatyard for the area where the boats are stored?

Re: Sailing Clubs: Dinghy Storage

Are these tarmacked areas where the boats are pulled up onto, or areas of water where there tied up?  If there areas of tarmack maybe just a different amenity= tag would be suitable, if it's a mooring area on water, then waterway maybe.  I know little on this though, so just saying the key's that would seem ok assuming it's one of those 2.

A sloped surface to launch boats in/out: leisure=slipway

Mooring the boat on a stretch of waterbank or weir/pier: mooring=yes/no/private

Re: Sailing Clubs: Dinghy Storage

In general I think these are areas of grassland. Dingys are stored throughout the year with a waterproof over the crew area. Whereas boatyard is probably the most appropriate, these areas are clearly not waterway, nor are they generally amenity: these are usually private storage areas within the boundaries of the sailing club. Large marinas will also have this type of facility (often with a crane), and this is used for storing keel boats (either over winter, or if raced seriously, between races). In this latter case the boatyard is the most appropriate tag.

My primary concern was to remove erroneous amenity=parking information from the database, but its always nice to be constructive in replacing such information.

Re: Sailing Clubs: Dinghy Storage

waterway=boatyard is the only waterway tag that isn't water, a way, or a feature on a water-way.  I think that's why I see it as not being a particularly good tag.  It's just linked to areas which operate around water.  A building at such a site, which is an office, is linked in the same way, but wouldn't be waterway=office just because of this link.
