PLANNING & DESIGN Spare floats used as party barges at Westpoint Harbor are popular with slip holders. Randy Mason, principal engineer, Anchor QEA. Mason is a consulting engineer for marina and site development, sea walls and upland civil engineering: It’s important to know the planned landside uses now so that in the future the waterspace can accommodate those facilities efficiently. Get a good hydrographic and topographic survey so you can design for the most efficient utilisation of your waterspace. Know Randy Mason: “It’s important to know the planned landside uses now so that in the future the waterspace can accommodate those facilities efficiently.” your property, bulkhead, pierhead and project lines, since these may limit the extent to which a marina can be built adjacent to navigable channels, and check to see if these lines have been recently amended by a local jurisdiction. With some ingenuity, you may find you have more space in the marina and can build more slips than you thought. RW: There is a great deal of focus on larger slips for ever bigger vessels but marinas still need to accommodate small boats. What’s the best way to approach this?

That includes marinas. This is not part of any revelation, ecstasy or catharsis recently experienced. On the contrary, designing, evaluating or operating marinas means going back to grass roots and taking a totally Socratic approach to understanding the complexity of factors that make a marina successful today. When a future marina owner starts a new project he does so with a seemingly invincible creative streak, when dealing with the earth and the seas and the birds and the plants and men. But times have changed, and other men have a huge influence on our developer. The basics Marinas, as such, emerged in the 1960s.
