Hurricane Irma passed just over a month ago, and while we still have a long way to go, solid progress continues.
Sixty docks are due to arrive in November and be installed in the undamaged outer marina, this will give us just over 100 slips here. We hope to accommodate many of our guests here this season.
The Husky Salvage team continue to clear the inner marina which is looking considerably better than it did. We have added two slips by the fuel dock and are working on additional slips. However, for the 2017/2018 season we will be making provisions for “med mooring” along the bulkhead the inner marina – tying boats up stern-to along the quay of the inner marina with moorings for the bows. This will obviously reduce the number of boats that we will be able to accommodate, but we look forward to accommodating many of our seasonal and transient guests this season. We hope to have additional plans in place soon for more dockage.
We have cranes in the boatyard righting toppled boats as the surveyors and adjusters approve the moves. The boatyard is a hive activity with boat repairs well underway and the Travelifts working full time to haul and launch boats.
All of the Nanny Cay based contractors are back up and running and working on boats.
We continue to clear up the debris around the property which is also looking more normal day by day.
