DECEMBER 12, 2017

The Kellerman Construction crew left after completing their work around the water way café.  The walkway is repaired and the fuel lines ae rehung.  Kellerman did such an outstanding job, we have asked them to come back to do more work.

 

DECEMBER 6, 2017 – Marina Status

PART 1.  Work has begun on the repairs to the walkway around the restaurant.  Part of this repair is to hang the fuel, water, sewage, electricity and communications lines.   Expected completion is for December 2017.

PART 2.  A contract is in place for the north end of the fuel dock to be repaired.  When this repair is complete, we will have the infrastructure in place to activate our fuel delivery system.  Expected completion is for January 2018.

PART 3.  We have an Invitation to Bid out to vendors to provide for the recertification of the marina’s fuel system from street side delivery ports to the dock side fuel dispensers.  This work is to start in January and be completed by March 2018.

October 3, 2017 – Commission Votes Tonight

The City Commission will vote tonight to award the bids to re-establish the Fuel Docks. Be mindful this vote is only for the Northern 300′ of the outside dock.  The Southern end of the dock is part of the much larger FEMA plan.

September 27, 2017 – Update

The fine folks at Automated Laundry Systems delivered and setup the replacement laundry equipment.  For the marina customers, the Laundry is OPEN.  2 washers and 2 dryers.

September 27, 2017 – Hurricane Irma

When asked if Hurricane Irma did any additional damage to the marina, I sometimes think there really wasn’t much left to damage.  I then think about the marinas around us that are literally GONE and am very thankful we incurred very little additional damage.

We still have 12 mooring balls, 5 transient slips, dinghy dock, short term dock, boat ramp and showers available.  Call for info (904) 310-3300 or visit our website for the contact form by clicking here.

 

Sept 1, 2017 – News to share!

FUEL DOCK TO REOPEN SOON

The City of Fernandina Beach advertised two Invitation to Bid packets for the marina on August 8th.
A mandatory pre-bid meeting was held August 18th.  Seven vendors attended that meeting and four of these vendors submitted bids.
All Bid Packages were opened on August 31 and bids were within the budget for each these projects.
On September 19th, the City Commission is scheduled to award contracts to two successful vendors.
Contracting with these two vendors should be done by September 30 and work should be completed 90 days after the actual contract date.
The first bid is for the repair of the timber walkway around the water front café and will include re-hanging the fuel, water, power, fire prevention and communication lines.
The second bid is for the safety enhancements and improvements of the North end of the outside dock, the fuel dock.  This is only for the northern most 300′ of dock and has nothing to do with the south end of the breakwater.  The breakwater is a separate situation (more news to follow).

When these projects are complete, Fernandina Harbor will be able to provide both Non-Ethanol gas and Diesel to the boating community.

Thank you to everyone for your patience and well wishes during this strange time.

 

Look for more info soon…..
