We hope all is well and you’ve had a great winter! As I am writing this the sun is shining and spring seems to be fighting to get here.
The harbour staff are getting ready for the upcoming season. The Hydro around the land storage areas has been turned on and checked as of 8:45am Thursday March 15, 2018. Please remember while using the hydro do not overload the circuits. The GFIs have been tested on the 15-amp circuits and they are working. The only reminder is that the 15-amp receptacles are on 1 circuit so you can't run more than 1 big draw i.e. a drill and a buffer or a heater and anything. If a plug is not working please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to rectify the issue.
We did receive some ice damage over the winter. The first twenty-foot main section of A dock (close to the steel wall) was damaged due to ice and wind movement and will be replaced. We had an engineer and the contractor who built the dock inspect the dock. The engineer recommended to replace it would safer and cheaper than repairing the old one. While the engineer was on site we discussed options to help prevent this from happening again, one option is to remove the first section and both fingers from either side so the dock can move preventing the dock being caught along the wall, and a couple of other ideas but we cannot compete against Mother Nature! Also, a section on G dock that will be repaired. The ice movement also shifted barrels on the fingers of the docks which will be repaired. All repairs are scheduled to be completed and ready for the 2018 season.
