Sandspit harbour to upgrade, sell lots

  • Nov. 16, 2007 2:00 p.m.

The Sandspit Harbour has plans to upgrade over the next year and sell some lots across the road, says wharfinger Kathy Goalder. Ms Goalder says they will be upgrading the electrical on the back dock from 120 volts to 240 volts so bigger yachts can use the facility more easily, as well as putting anodes on the steel pilings to help cut corrosion. She says the fuel system has been tested and had its yearly maintenance and is open for winter hours from 9 am to 12 pm everyday. Everyone is welcome, she says, noting theirs is the only established fuel dock on the south end of the islands. In other Sandspit Harbour news, the lots across the road are owned by the harbour and are for sale. Ms Goalder is preparing a package to offer as information to potential buyers. Ms Goalder’s position was extended for three more years. The annual general meeting of the society was held Nov. 12 and two new board members were appointed, Don McNiece and Ray Lorenzo. The three other board members are Duane Gould, Gord Usher and Travis Glasman.
