Marina News 2021

Marina News September 2021

All three of our marinas are now designated as Clean and Resilient Marinas by the State of Florida.

Hurricane Season –We sent a copy of our hurricane preparation plan out last month. Hopefully you found it helpful. If you have any questions or concerns, just ask our staff for help. It is hurricane season, and we watch all of the storms closely. We ask that you all do the same. It is also important to always leave your boat secure and ready for a storm. Even a squall can cause damage. Always be prepared.

Late Summer Early Fall – In general all the normal repairs and maintenance are finally up to date due to a slow start because of Covid. Things are back to normal, and our normal cleaning and repairs continue as always. Our summer help has gone back to school but may still help us on weekends with some projects. Let us know if there is anything that may need our attention.

 Marina Wi-Fi – We have been replacing some of the old nodes at all three of the marinas with high-speed nodes. We are also adding a node at Yacht Harbor to increase coverage. Please remember that even tough you may see our nodes on your device and show a strong signal from our nodes you may still have some connection problems if your device isn’t strong enough to get a signal to the nodes. If you are in the boat, it may be difficult for your device to clearly send a signal out to the node. A Wi-Fi signal amplifier may help with this issue on the boat. They start at about $20 and can go over $100. They can help you work around obstructions like boats.

Old Marina News August 2021

All three of our marinas are now designated as Clean and Resilient Marinas by the State of Florida.

 

Hurricane Season – During the storm season we send weather advisories out to our customers if a named storm has a chance to affect us. If you would like to be on the weather advisory list just e-mail us and asked to be added. We also have a hurricane preparation plan that goes into effect when a storm is approaching. The plan has multiple levels or preparation depending on the severity of the storm strength and location. We have attached a copy of the plan to this email. It is also important to always leave your boat secure and ready for a storm. Even a squall can cause damage. Always be prepared.

 

Island Cove Marina – We have new chairs for the upstairs tables on the porch. We have mowed down the reeds and tall grass around the property. We have started to remove all the junk around the building and clean things up. We have replaced about 100 dock boards, so far, and power washed most of the docks.

 

 Palm Harbor Marina  We have been weeding out the flower beds around the Palm Trees. We are also going to replace some of the decking and lights on the fixed dock going to the dock ramp.

 

 Yacht Harbor Marina – We have repaired the white fence and replaced the 2 pilings that were damaged. We have repaired the sea wall and damage to the fixed wooden dock from Hurricane Sally. We have added additional gravel and graded the parking. We are trying to keep the puddles that form when it rains hard down to a minimum.
