Dana Point Shipyard Expands to Meet the Changing Industry Marina Of the Year

Dana Point Shipyard in Dana Point, California, has been a family owned business since it started repairing and cleaning boats in 1967. In the beginning, the business morphed with the industry and opportunities. Nearly 50 years later, the family is still the same, and the facility and the industry is changing again. The boatyard completed major renovations earlier this year, preparing it for the different class of vessels, which have already begun to arrive for repairs at the boatyard.

Oceanside Harbor Operates First of its Kind Bilge Pump

Common sense dictates that bilge water containing things such as oil, gasoline, cleaning solvents and hydraulic fluid is not good for the environment and can contaminate the waters it enters. So how do marinas and their boaters dispose of contaminated bilge water? Other than absorbent pads and elbow grease, not too many options were available until recently. Keco Pump and Equipment in collaboration with a European company has developed a new bilge pumpout system that not only removes contaminants from bilge water but does so with no filters and little to no equipment maintenance. This impressive new technology is now operational at Oceanside Harbor in California and is available free to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

PWC Docking Platform

HydroHoist Marine Group introduces HP Extreme, its newest product line of PWC docking platforms. While docking, the PWC is fully roller-supported, five-inch x two-inch rollers, and the roller width and placement is easily adjustable to accommodate different crafts. The platform is made from expanded polystyrene (EPS) marine foam – for increased strength and leak elimination. The new port has flat, anti-skid walking surfaces and an exclusive “air-pillow” bow stop. HydroHoist worked with Italian company Persico Group, to engineer the mold designs. The mold was then shipped to RotoMoldUSA – a division of HydroHoist Marine Group – for final assembly and where production began in May. Additional product enhancements include stainless steel roller axels for increased strength and compatibility with fresh, brackish, and saltwater.

Wood Dock Planking

Pine River Group introduces Pier Advantage Dock products, designed for waterfront applications. The company said the products are a natural, environmentally product for marina construction. Pier Advantage Wood Dock Planking is made from top quality #1 Southern Yellow Pine. The company said it selects each board for quality and appearance, so Pier Advantage wood dock boards are straight and have less wane. This product is engineered with eased edges and stress relief grooves. Stocking lengths for the boards are 8-, 12-, 16-, and 20-foot and treated to .40 ACQ.

Multi-purpose Work Boat

ELASTEC introduced the Omni Cat, as a multi-purpose marina maintenance catamaran. The versatile aluminum work boat offers a variety of waterway maintenance and marina service applications. The company said its interchangable "pods" are easily exchanged to facilitate various marine tasks, such as washing down docks, seawalls and hulls; collecting floating trash and debris; cutting invasive aquatic weeds; buoy and mooring maintenance; responding to oil spills and transporting cargo. When the “pods” are not needed on the water, they can be put on the “pod cart” for land-based operations. Designed for sheltered waterways and marinas, the Omni Cat is simple to operate, easy to maintain and has the potential to provide additional revenue streams for marina operators.
