I was over there yesterday to get some paint. Lots of moorings and lots of empty ones. They have boats on the floating docks on the bulkhead and a few were tied up to the pier too.

It aint pretty

It seems the Port really doesn't want to spend the money to repair them. At least with the solutions presented so far. I think they had 4 different engineering reports(divers inspect) done. One would think some of that wasted money could be spent on the piers. Of course and rightly so they are looking for the least expensive fix.

In the meantime, the Port has allocated a whole bunch of dry storage area. Roads for the travel lift etc. will have to be built. I would expect to be moving boats into the new area sometime after the first of the year

Here's a for-what-it's-worth update...

There are plenty of mooring buoys available and plenty of room for any cruiser-sized boat. It appears there is dry space available, too, because the marina has worked to accommodate its customers. It's a popular enough site with a great array of support services that it will be full sooner or later. It's unlikely the piers will be an option in the foreseeable future.

A nearby resource for a few little guys, expecially weekend sailors who live nearby, is the Knight's Marina at Black Creek. The site is a county-owned boatramp that is relatively new, more or less 10 years. There are plenty of government-imposed rules that may keep away some sailors, for example no live-aboards or even spend-the-night-aboards.

The slips appear limited in size, surely nothing above 40' would fit, maybe even a littl smaller than that. However, within those boundaries, it's a clean and attractive facility, moderately priced. It never will compete with the old navy facility, but it's a nice little alternative.

Thanks for the update concerning Green Cove. Are the old Navy piers permanently condemned? There was a large contingent of live aboards there..where did they disperse too?

Thanks again,

Clay
