We’ve reconditioned the floating dock

Floatingdock01B It took a 7-man crew 10 days and $5,000 in materials to make our storm damaged float like new for 2013. The Catalina Experience staff did an amazing job stripping the old lumber and bolts, painting the frame, installing a new floatation pontoon and resurfacing the entire 54′ floating dock with new lumber and hardware. Special thanks to BYC’s Mike Longfield and CBYC’s Alan Singer for their assistance.
Heavy equipment was brought down to Whites by a great work crew from the Catalina Island Conservancy on launch day to finish the task, and the dingy steps and ladders provided by San Diego Yacht Club have finally been permanently installed. The process required 650 man hours, 75 2x12x16′ boards, over 300 bolts, nuts and washers, custom made pontoon brackets and 4 gallons of paint.
