Boathouse update - Slipway construction starts Monday

The scene at Peveril Point is going to change somewhat on Monday when the large jack up barge arrives to start the installation of our slipway.

The first job is to install the piles that will support the main body of the slipway. Once that is done the precast concrete cross beams will be installed. After that the steel slipway is lowered in to place and secured.

The installation of the piles is unfortunately a noisy activity as it involves driving the tubes into the ground with a large hammer. As such, this activity will be limited to 5:00pm during the week, 1:00pm on Saturday and no pile driving on Sunday.

We’ll keep you posted on how its going.
