PONTOONS & BREAKWATERS replaced non-breakwater pontoons that are no long suitable due to a marina reconfiguration. Additional projects in Charleston have included the delivery of 186ft (56.6m) of 10ft (3m) wide floating breakwaters to a private residence. The type 500 breakwater installed at Carolina Yacht Club five years ago was one of several SF installations in Charleston, South Carolina. Ocean Race stopover also prompted a floating concrete dock order. Sail Newport, which has a fleet of rental boats and is the largest public sailing centre in New England, has SF concrete docks dating back to the 1990s. New type 1240 sections were ordered to boost moorage space for the Volvo event and for the many events it hosts throughout the year. Returning to Charleston SF Marina Systems USA installed a Type 500 breakwater five years ago at Carolina Yacht Club in Charleston and a marina system over 20 years ago at Patriots Point Marina. The company returned to Patriots Point this year to supply around 400ft (122m) of 10ft (3m) wide floating breakwater units. These Still to come Ongoing project highlights include an order for type 300 and 400 breakwaters of 1,706ft (520m) total length for Burlington Harbor Marina, Lake Champlain, Vermont and the recent delivery (July) of a type 600 breakwater and megayacht fingers totalling 541ft (165m) in length for the brand new Fore Points Marina in Portland, Maine (see World News). Part of the IGY Marinas portfolio, Fore Points will accommodate over 140 vessels and up to ten megayachts and is due to open in early 2019. James Island Yacht Club in Charleston, SC, will meanwhile take delivery of a 500ft (152m) type 1240 heavy-duty dock attenuator to be moored by 30in (76cm) internal piles. The Club’s previous system was destroyed during a hurricane. 38 - September/October 2018
