We are planning on de-winterizing the marina by the weekend of April 5th if Mother Nature cooperates! I know we all are looking forward to washing our boats, filling our water tanks and using the restrooms closest to our slips!
We will be resurfacing the main entrance drive as soon as the weather breaks. I have asked for notice from our contractor, but we have no guarantee he will give it to me prior to arriving to do the work. If you arrive and see the work equipment, for those of you on A, B, and F Docks, please use the drive from the boat yard next door ( F Dock go in front of the lighthouse and around to your slip ). G, C, D, and E Docks, please use the far entrance to the marina. Also beware of your speed on the new drive. We are installing speed bumps!
Take a look around the marina. Notice anything new? We are always looking for ways we can improve on marina safety. There are now 16 new bright orange life rings installed through out the marina. Please take the time to locate the one nearest your slip just in case of an emergency.
Opening Day PARTY!!!
Now, everyone who knows me, knows I love a party!!!! Those of you who know me also know that I can throw one heck of a marina party. Well, April 26th is the beginning of Opening Weekend for the marina and Stingray Harbour Yacht Club! On Saturday, April 26th from 2:00 – 5:00pm we will be having our famous annual Open House Party in the Stingray Point Lighthouse! There will be plenty of food and drink for all so please write down the date and come and say hello to old and new marina friends! I can’t wait to see you all!!!
I would also like to let everyone know that the Schooner Virginian will be in Deltaville the weekend of April 26th. It will be docked at Fishing Bay Harbor Marina. Please visit our Facebook page for more information on tours and activities throughout the weekend.
Last of all, as the season approaches, I would like to thank everyone for respecting my privacy and “off duty time” while I am on my boat. All the marina phone calls that go directly to the office number ( 804- 776-7272 ) and the emails about marina issues have really allowed me some “me time”. Of course, if there is a true emergency, LET ME KNOW!!!
Not long now everyone! IT WILL BE A GREAT SEASON!!!!!
