Maine Marina Installs SF Marina Floating Concrete Dock
Spring Point Marina is located on picturesque Casco Bay, a popular boating destination in Maine. Once a shipyard for Liberty Ships, the South Portland, Maine, USA recreational harbor recently upgraded its facility with the addition of a state-of-the-art SF Marina floating concrete dock and walkway.
Installed by Rockland, Maine-based Prock Marine Company, the Spring Point Marina project included seven 20m L x 5m W SF 1250 floating concrete pontoons. Built to withstand the nor’easters common in the area, the dock sections are highly buoyant and virtually unsinkable. Moored on internal 61cm steel piles, they provide extreme stability.
Utilities such as 50A and 100A power, water and other services are routed through internal ducts. A slightly narrower SF 1240 pontoon
was used for the walkway.
The new SF Marina section adds 350m of straight transient dock space for Spring Point Marina. Due to its wave-attenuating design, it helps shelter the existing dock and slip array from waves and large wakes.
”We love the new docks,” said Port Harbor Marine director of operations Mike Soucy. ”Because the SF Marina pontoons are easy to put together, construction went very smoothly.” Spring Point Marina is one of five employee-owned Port Harbor Marine properties.
Spring Point Marina has over 275 slips with 30A, 50A, and 100A power service, and can accommodate yachts up to 60m in length. A full-service boatyard, it has a 50-ton Travelift, 10-ton forklift, hydraulic trailers and the capacity to handle any repair. The marina is walking distance to beaches and lighthouses and only five minutes from Portland International Jetport. Its website is www.springpointmarina.com.
