Staff have been replacing the sacrificial anodes on the seawall during low tide. The anodes protect the aluminum wall panels from electrolysis and require replacement about every two to three years.
Landings Harbor fishing pier
There have been reports of stolen crab traps recently at The Landing Harbor Pier. The security footage does show one individual leaving the dock with three traps on Tuesday night around 10:45 – 10:50 p.m. There has not been a positive identification at this point. Please remember to check your traps daily, and if you are unable to do so, remove your trap at the end of the day.
Free Vessel Safety Check
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary has scheduled a FREE VESSEL SAFETY CHECK at Landings Harbor Marina on Saturday, June 25 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Please enter a BoatCloud reservation to have your boat placed on a wash rack if you would like to have your boat inspected.
Generator for the Marina
The new generator was delivered and installed by Selectric, LLC on Tuesday. This will provide backup power for the marina ship’s store and fuel system when needed.
Be on the Lookout for our Missing Mermaid
The women’s restroom recently had some decorative items hung up on the walls. Saturday morning, one of our daily morning walkers noticed that the wood mermaid silhouette décor was missing. The mermaid was recently used as the outline for our dry erase board. She is made of light wood and painted similarly to the picture below and is approximately two feet long. This item belonged to a staff member, and we would really appreciate that it is returned. If you happen to see her, please let us know. If she were to re-appear, there would be no questions asked.

This is a two-day course that includes classroom instruction plus an on-the-water session. The cost is $100 per student. $25 is refundable if you join TLSC within 30 days. You must be a Landings resident. Please reach out to Angela Margolit if interested (973-296-8011 or firstname.lastname@example.org).

This is the perfect time of year to go over some basic crab trap regulations. Crab traps need to be pulled and checked every 24 hours. Improperly labeled or neglected crab traps will be pulled from the water. The Turtle Excluder Device (TEDs) mentioned below can be found in the ship store for free. Please read the below snippet. More information can be found here: https://gacoast.uga.edu/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/1908-Fisheries-BlueCrabOutreach-Card3x6.pdf
CRABBING WITH A CRAB POT - Georgia residents and their immediate family living on private docks don’t need a license to use a crab trap on their property. A recreational crabber may possess up to six standard size crab traps (2 feet by 2 feet) with two escape rings on each trap. Diamondback terrapin excluder devices, or “TEDs,” fit on the outer entrance funnels on crab traps. Although not legally required, these devices prevent terrapins from getting caught in the traps and drowning. Recreational crabbers are required to mark their traps with a fluorescent green buoy bearing the owner’s name and address in one-inch letters.
