WORLD NEWS Improved bay access for Glorietta marina USA: Glorietta Bay Marina in Coronado Bay, California has replaced its C-dock and installed an improved boat launch with the assistance of Bellingham Marine. Unifloat concrete docks have been installed on C-dock, along with a berth reconfiguration, improved ADA access and designated ADA berths, new fire lines and upgraded power. A new gate, railing, gangway and abutment pier has also been built. The reconfiguration has enabled the marina to keep its original 34-slip count but with larger slips. Kevin Ketchum, principal and general manager of California Yacht Marina and operator of Glorietta Bay, said: “Some of the most impressive improvements were made around the boat launch. The old concrete boat ramp was heavily deteriorated. The new ramp, boarding float and the new assisted kayak launch [right] go a long way in supporting the city’s goal of providing improved access to the bay for the entire community.” Bellingham Marine overlaid the existing ramp with a precast concrete panel. A system of keyholes and grout were used to level out the ramp and secure the new panels in place. “The new boarding float is ADA accessible and includes a low freeboard aluminium dock with a ramp that allows kayakers to launch themselves into the water – it’s the only one in San Diego,” remarked Eric Noegel, manager of project development for Bellingham Marine. The marina is a public boating facility owned by the city. Bellingham Marine rebuilt half of the marina in 2007, but the replacement of C-dock and improvements to the marina’s boat launch were left for a later date. Last year, the remaining work went out to bid and Bellingham Marine was again awarded the contract for all land and waterside improvements.
