CORONADO CAYS COMMUNITY GETS MARINA UPGRADE
June 2, 2009
Renovation work has been completed at Coronado Cays Yacht club in southern California. Bellingham Marine completed installation of the new D and E docks in late April – just in time for the Club’s 2009 Opening Day Celebration on May 2nd.
New electrical and mechanical systems were installed with 30/30 receptacles at each power center and a 50A receptacle at each end tie. Existing electrical, telephone and cable main feeds were reused in the renovation as well as existing gangways.
The existing slips on docks D and E were replaced with longer and wider double berth slips increasing the average slip length between the two docks from 31.8’ to 35’.
The existing piles were pulled and new prestressed concrete piles were driven. New hose bibs and fire hose cabinets with equipment were also installed. In addition an ADA compliant gangway was added to B dock bringing the marina into ADA compliance.
“The upgraded slips are appreciated by the members. We’re looking forward to replacing the club’s three remaining docks in coming years,” said the Club’s Port Captain, Alan Sweetow. B dock was rebuilt by Bellingham Marine in 2001.
The Coronado Cays Yacht Club enjoys strong local support and is regarded by many as the social center of the Cays community. A beautiful clubhouse, quality restaurant, modern marina, and an active membership base reflects the club’s strong commitment to providing a full range of boating-related events and member services for everyone to enjoy.
