On the Waterfront
Operating Hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Daily
Last weekend’s weather was not boater friendly. It was chilly and extremely windy. Our team was on site to make sure the boats were secured in their slips. Once the weather did break, the next few days our team performed routine cleaning on the floating docks, pier, and raked up the leaves from around the jet ski racks. A few rusted I-beams were replaced on the dry rack buildings to prevent rust from getting on any boats. Our IT provider, Infinity had a crew on site last week cleaning up the IT closet, resulting in a clean and properly labeled system. In preparation for the installation of a backup generator for the Marina, a new battery backup was installed that will manage the power transfer in the event the generator is needed, and during the weekly generator test.
Meet the Team
We continue introducing our Marinas team members each week so that you will have names to go along with the faces you see. This is Alex Schuman. He has been with us since August 2020. He is one of our most dependable and hard-working forklift drivers. Alex is a HUGE fan of the Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta Braves! He got the opportunity to go to his first UGA game this past season! His girlfriend, Ashton, is a ‘Bama fan, so that makes football season interesting, to say the least. His big smile and sense of humor are always present when he’s at the marina!
Free Vessel Safety Checks THIS SUNDAY!!
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary will be offering FREE vessel safety checks this Sunday, March 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You may request boat movement through the BoatCloud App to have your boat placed on a wash rack for inspection. If you have questions, you may contact Jay Gleeson (917-783-0269).
Dolan Yacht Service, Inc. anticipates completing the dredging project at Landings Harbor by the end of this week. A bathymetric survey will be done by a third party to verify any other areas that need attention. The final bathymetric survey will be compared to the pre-dredge bathy in determining the total volume of material removed during the project.
Marina Ship’s Store
The store received some new hats this past week. These are lightweight and breathable with a moisture wicking sweatband. Also, our Rheos floating sunglasses have been restocked. More shelves were added to the wall to allow room for more merchandise. I am told that we should have most of the 50th Anniversary apparel that has been ordered by the end of next week. Stay tuned to this weekly for updates!

Delegal Creek Marina
After some delays in the supply chain, two of the three electrical panels have arrived at Delegal Creek Marina. The new panels will replace the dated panels on the fixed walkway at the head of each dock. The wet slips will experience power interruptions during the installation process. We will advise all Delegal boaters via an email blast of the dates that we expect interruptions so they can prepare their boats to be without electrical service. Fully charged batteries should be at the top of the list. Any perishables that are in freezers or refrigerators should be removed. It is always safe to shut off any breakers to A/C’s, hot water heaters, refrigerators, and freezers to avoid power surges when the service is restored. Boaters are not permitted to operate generators while at the dock except for test runs (10 to 15 minutes maximum). Keep an eye out for the email blasts to stay informed on the project scheduling.
Delegal Creek has seen an increase in guests staying with us. I'm proud to say they have all loved our beautiful island and the people on it. Delegal has also been a host to people traveling out of our marina to go to Ossabaw island. The island is approximately 26,000 acres. Ossabaw Island is Georgia's third largest barrier island. Nearly 9,000 acres are high ground; the remainder is tidal wetlands.
