Oregon Yacht Club's Restated Bylaws, Article IX, establishes the process whereby a shareholder with seniority (Bumper) can bump and occupy the moorage space of a new shareholder (Bumpee), thus requiring the bumpee to allow the relocation of his/her houseboat to either the bumper's space or another open moorage space.

The Bump Guide provides needed information to assist shareholders with the procedures necessary to follow in relocating their houseboat (as a bumper or bumpee).
