Dredge Project Updates
Weekly Update #17
November 27, 2018
Harbor Chairman Christopher Lacey reports that the final three slips will be dredged on Monday, November 26 and the dredge project will be considered substantially complete. There will be some clean-up the remainder of this week, primarily in the fairway between the 0 and 100 Docks and in the area North of the 0 dock and Main Channel, but we can say our project is completed ahead of schedule and substantially under budget!
For those of you who currently have your boats displaced for the dredge project, please return them to their proper slips as soon as you can after Wednesday 28 November (preferably prior to the Annual Meeting) so we can free up our Guest and Member Docks for use by the membership.
NOTE: Please be advised that although we have completed our project, there are two other dredge projects currently underway adjacent to the SFYC, which will continue through the end of this week and possibly into early December if required. Some Corinthian Island homeowners are dredging along the western shore of Corinthian Island along our Main Channel and the Belvedere Land Company will be dredging along the Farr Cottages (55-88 Beach Road) just to the north of our northern fairway at the 0 Dock. The good part is that no further dredging will be required in the Belvedere Cove Area for the next 9-10 years.
On behalf of the Harbor Committee and staff, we would like to extend our sincere thanks for all of the support and understanding the membership has given us during this very disruptive and long project (the first bucket of silt was removed from the Harbor on August 2). This type of project is required to ensure safe and unimpeded navigation through our Harbor and Main Channel but thankfully happens only once each decade.
