Happy Holidays – We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The club house will be decorated for the Holidays and the tree will be up. There will be several parties going on this month and some dates are still open if you would like to use the club house. As always, we greatly appreciate our customers and hope that your stay with us is a pleasant one. We are here for our guests and wish you all a Happy Holiday!

Holiday Schedule – This year the holidays fall on Tuesday and Wednesday and the office will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. So, the office will be closed December, 24th, and 25th and December, 31st, and January 1st.  These days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Let us know if you need anything prior to these dates. Pump outs will be done on Thursdays following each holiday.

Winter on the Bayou – The cold weather is here already, and you will notice that with the cold weather come the north winds which push the water out of the Bayou making low tides really low at times. Please be aware that this occurs only in the winter months and is usually only really bad a few times per season. Bayou Chico is very well protected from storms. It is a natural hurricane hole. With this protection comes a small price, low winter tides and shallow water. Please be careful coming and going on low tide during the winter months and let us know if your slip is too shallow or has a problem. We will accommodate you as best we can.

2020 Price changes – There will be know price changes for Island Cove Marina again this year. Yacht Harbor Marina will have a slight increase of 30 per foot, and Palm Harbor Marina 50 per ft.

Termites and Boats – It may seem to be a strange topic for a fiberglass boat, but termites can be problematic on even the newest fiberglass boat. Termites love moist wet wood and all boats have wood somewhere on board. Termites can get into stringers, cabinets, flooring, and just about anywhere in your boat usually without you even aware they are around. They can cause severe structural damage if left unchecked. Over the years we have seen several vessels infested with termites. In most severe cases the boat must be tented, either in water or in the yard. This can be very expensive. So, check your boat for signs of termites and at the first sign start remediation yourself or call a professional. Don’t put it off they work fast.

  Island Cove Marina – We have completed the dock repairs on B dock, C dock, and the part of A dock we are keeping. This doesn’t mean everything is perfect or rebuilt but it does mean we replaced or repaired all the issues that were needed for safety. If you have any issues on the docks, please let us know. We have power washed the decking and walkways around the marina and will be power washing the docks during the next few weeks. We have had some gate issues but everything is fixed and working fine.

 Palm Harbor Marina – We have repaired the fixed dock walkway. We are getting things ready for some cooler weather on the docks. The heater is working, and the curtains have been put down and washed. We should be power washing the docks sometime this month.

 Yacht Harbor Marina –We have repaired the floor in the men’s room shower. We should be power washing the docks sometime this month. The gate has been open a couple of times because of concerns over stormy weather and possibly losing power
