Boat Park Fence
Commencement Date: January 2021
Target Completion Date: March 2021
Project Lead: Conor Lyons
Team: Walter McInerny; Johnny Shorten
Scope: Construction of fence enclosure of cruiser park
The cruiser park is the winter storage area for cruisers in Galway Bay Sailing Club. Cruiser owners pay an annual fee to store their boats here and require crane facilities to lift in and lift out at the start and end of the season, respectively. Yachts are stored “on the hard” as the winter weather is not conducive to sailing and storms can be damaging to yachts on swing moorings. It is also a condition for yacht Insurance policies that they cannot be left on a swing mooring from the end of October to the beginning of April. The club also from time to time allow temporary storage of yachts in this area on an individual arrangement basis.
The area is currently enclosed using a number of metal posts and metal fence panels which are poorly attached and broken in a number of places. This fencing is unsightly and provides little security to the area. Broken fencing has protruding metal parts which are hazardous to club members and the public.
