July 9, 2019 – Electrical work begins on dock 5 in Southern Basin

Marina Utilities, a subcontractor for Brance Diversified, is currently on site for the electrical repairs to Dock 5.  When complete, the dock that is between the boat ramp and Brett’s will be disconnected from the pilings and floated south to be joined to Dock 5.  The amenities will be limited on this longer, connected dock.  Dock 5 is intended to be used as a dinghy and short term location.

A new dock has been ordered and is being manufactured to be installed in the location between the boat ramp and Brett’s.

Kevin Little

Fernandina Beach and the Fernandina Harbor Marina community is mourning the loss of Dock Master Keven Little who welcomed boaters from up and down the coast for 32 years. You couldn’t ask for a nicer person to be the face of Fernandina for the boating community. He will be greatly missed.
Here is a sampling of condolences posted on the Oxley Heard website:
Wolfgang Linke, who sailed to marina said, “Kevin was an exceptional man and dockmaster. I’ll never forget his welcoming words when I called the marina on the radio coming in after a long solo sail from Charleston. I felt like I was coming home. He had that gift, though I was a customer, to make me feel like a friend.”
David Roberts, a classmates from Kevin’s growing up years in Fernandina said, “He was one of my best friends growing up on Amelia and was one of the nicest and most honorable men I have ever met. He loved nature. Kevin will be missed by so many because he touched so many lives in his far too brief time on earth.”

Funeral services were held Wednesday, 3:00 p.m. on March13 at Bosque Bello.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations in Kevin’s memory be made to the Okefenokee State Park at Okeswamp.com, the Fernandina Beach Humane Society, or any non-profit effort to preserve and protect wildlife and their natural environments.
