Landings Harbor Marina
On Tuesday, May 10, Landings Harbor and Dolan Yacht Services experienced an electrical power surge and power outage that damaged our computer battery backup units. We contacted our electricians and Georgia Power. Both sent representatives out to investigate the cause. After several hours, no issues were discovered, and the power stabilized. Further investigation is needed to determine the cause of the power outage. Georgia Power is scheduling an engineer to investigate the underground main feeder lines that service the Marina.
Forklift operator certification training is taking place for two Marina staff members on Thursday, May 19. This will bring our Certified Forklift operators to six to help cover operations during the summer.
Marina Ship’s Store
Lots of new merchandise arrived this week! We received several new solar shirts for men and women, including a solar hoody. By popular demand, we finally have custom embroidered Landings Boonie hats at the Ship’s Store! There are two additional flavors of Leopold’s single serve cups in the ice cream freezer. We’ve added Peanut Butter Chip and Strawberry Sorbet to our regular line up. Yum!
50th Anniversary Merchandise
The kickoff 50th Anniversary event is this Sunday! Jen Sabo will be set up with a table with all the 50th merchandise for you to purchase. So if you haven’t been able to get to the Ship’s Store, you can get them at the event. We will have the polo’s, t-shirts, hats, Tervis tumblers, koozies, and golf towels! Cheers to 50 Years! You will be able to have your purchase put onto your Landings Association account or pay by VISA or MASTERCARD.
Landings Sailing Club
The Landings Sailing Club had its 3rd Spring Series Race on Saturday. Due to the brisk winds, the Rhodes 19 boats remained dockside, while the J/24’s raced. This Friday will be another Beer Can Race/Social event.
The Landings Harbor Marina dry, wet, and jet ski storage is at full capacity. We continue to maintain a waiting list for all slips.
Jet Ski Storage
The Marina is recommending that jet skis and wave runners stored at the Harbor be covered when not in use. The watercrafts that are not covered become nesting grounds for mosquitoes when standing water sits in the inner gunwale. Mold and mildew can also accumulate, making for an unsightly nuisance.
Dry Stack Project update
MacAljon Engineering will be on-site next week to perform a scan of the dry rack building footer locations and create an as-built drawing. Ground Penetrating Radar will also be part of the scope of work being performed. This will determine the integrity of the existing footers that may be used for the new rack buildings.
2022 Dredge Project Completion update
Hargrove Engineering performed the post bathymetric survey following the dredge project. This is a mandatory step tied to our Nationwide Permit for dredging operations. The calculations are compared to the bathymetric survey conducted prior to the dredge project to verify the total cubic yards of material removed from the basin. The results were satisfactory, and notification of the completion of the project will be sent to the regulatory authorities.
Dredge Permit Renewal
The US Army Corp of Engineers issues dredge permits under a Nationwide Permit that covers a three-year period. The Nationwide Permit expired in March 2022, and a renewal is necessary. Staff are working with engineers that are familiar with our project to apply for the renewal.
McWhorter Dredge Ponds
Hargrove Engineering has been contracted to perform a survey of the spoils ponds that material is pumped to during dredging. This survey is necessary to renew our Nationwide Permit to dredge the marina basin. The US Army Corp of Engineers will issue a new permit for dredging and base the available storage verified by the survey in the ponds to calculate the annual volume of material we are allowed to remove. Over the past three years, our allowable volume has been 5,500 cubic yards per year.
Bubbler Curtain Project Update
Staff continued conversations with Skidaway Institute of Oceanography UGA this week on forming a partnership on the project. Georgia DNR representative Jan Mackinnon, who issues Monitoring and Research projects, was involved in the conversation. We anticipate that the project will move forward as a research and monitoring project with UGA. The application is being completed and will be submitted to Georgia DNR as soon as possible.

Electrical Panel Project
“A” and “B” dock panels are in place and providing power to the slips and ship’s store. “B” Dock panel inner gear and hardware that was incorrectly installed by the manufacturer is being built and should be shipped by the end of the month. Thank you all for your cooperation during the project.
