Info on Mooring Inspection

Douglas Harbour Mooring Inspection & Maintenance

All who own a mooring in Douglas Harbour should have it inspected every couple of years.  There have been several boats that have broken away from moorings and damage to your own or a neighbour’s vessel is an unhappy event that should be avoided.  We are fortunate to have a well-qualified diver residing very close to the Douglas Harbour wharf with a pontoon boat and necessary equipment.  Here is the information on his services; please contact him (better still team up with another boater) to have your mooring inspected:

Sylvain Jutras, Diver in Douglas Harbour

The price is $65 per dive/ tank. So when I go check a mooring and it requires a chain replacement, the dive to replace the chain is included in the $65. I don’t expect someone to purchase a chain until he knows if it requires one or not. If a mooring needs to be moved then they can contact me for a quote as it will be more as I need to get lift drums and extra air for the lift. If it is a search then I go back again to $65 per tank.

My email is jjutras2@hotmail.com and tel # 385-2490 for contact information. I will be available after the 15th of June so if they contact me I can set a date with them according to work schedule and weather. The mooring holder should be there when I do the inspection.

Same will apply to club members. The difference for club members is that I can dive any time after the 27th of May but due to a family wedding I will not be available between the 9th and 13th of June. If it is an emergency between those dates, contact me and I will see what I can do as I will still be in the area.

Early FYC Cruise – June 25 – July 2, 2016

The dates for the Early Club Cruise are Saturday June 25 to Saturday July 2.

If people are interested in going on the cruise please let me know with a vote

1 -“I want to start and return to Fredericton” or

2 – “I want to start and return to Douglas Harbour” or

3 – “I just want to go on the cruise!”
