Island Cove MarinaWe have power washed the docks, railings, decks, and the gazebo. We will be cleaning up around the building and removing and disposing of any junk we find laying around. If you are storing anything around the building or property let us know or it may end up in the dumpster.

Palm Harbor Marina We have power washed the docks, board walk, and sidewalks. We will be cleaning up the parking area around the dingy racks.

Yacht Harbor Marina We are power washing the docks, the patio, and furniture. We have also just sprayed the weeds in the parking lot. We are finally regrading the parking lot and adding gravel.

Winter in Bayou Chico With the cold winter weather comes a couple of issues we deal with almost every year in Bayou Chico. One is the freezing temperatures which cause us to shut down the water supply to the docks. It takes several hours to shut off the water and drain the water lines on the docks. Even with that if we have a hard freeze we still often have broken pipes that must be repaired after the freeze. If you know freezing temperatures are on the way, and you need water in your boat, top off the tank before we must shut off the water. If you need water while the water is off fill water buckets and leave them on the boat to poor into the holding tank when the tank is dry. The other annoying part of winter cold fronts is the low water levels. When the north wind blows for days as the cold front arrives it can push up to 2 feet of water out of the Bayou. If you have a 6’ deep slip it can go to 4’ on certain days. We have had crazy low tides this winter. A couple of days sitting on the bottom in the freezing weather is the price we pay for hurricane protection in the Bayou.
