Director Ben Swan and his son, alumnus Rip Swan, took a trip up to Pine Island this week to take final measurements for the new floating dock system.
The mainland dock (shown below) has always been a huge pain in the neck to install, and it’s not quite as wide as we would like. While carrying gear, we need to walk single file, or risk falling in.
Generous gifts from former dock builders have provided the funds to construct a very robust floating dock system that will be delivered and installed in June. The entire system will be lifted out of the water every fall, along with the swim float and the boathouse floating dock. Veteran Mainland Dock builders (pictured below) will truly appreciate this new system. And we’ll all benefit from a wider mainland dock.
