Predator Too weighs in at 25 tons
The marina team recently lifted a fully laden Hanse 588 out of the water. At 25 tons, the vessel is one of the largest ever handled by our hoist crew. Predator Too is over 16m in length and over 5m in the beam. After being manoeuvred into position there was only 100mm to spare either side in the dock! Now successfully moved to the hard standing, the sailing cruiser is being made ready for sale with BJ Marine.
Please be helpful to other berth holders and return your trolley to the trolley park immediately after use. Too many people are keeping a trolley on the pontoon by their boat in case they need it later, leaving no trollies for others when they head to the compound. To increase availability, we have recently purchased 12 new trollies. We have also fitted new trolley locks to the current inventory as well. If everyone plays their part there should be plenty to go around, even when the marina gets busy.
Remember to collect your new key fobs
The new contactless key fob system for opening the car park barriers, the pontoon gates and toilet facilities is now up and running and working well. If you have signed and returned your annual berthing contract your fobs are ready to collect from the office. The green fobs are individually numbered and assigned to each vessel. To use, place it on the circle above the Loxone logo on the touchpad (see photo below). Please note the old pin code system will be phased out shortly.
Work to dredge the harbour entrance back to its design depth is due to commence as planned in May. A Notice to Mariners will be posted on the website nearer the time with more details on the start date.
The marina team would like to wish our Harbour Assistant, Trefor Jones, a long and happy retirement. He has been a key member of the team for many years. Before leaving last week Trefor welcomed his replacement, Tony Adams.
