Improvements to LYC Facility

posted Aug 9, 2011, 11:47 AM by Longview Yacht Club

Shane is now in the process of driving the first five new pier support posts to replace those that are starting to deteriorate.  The new posts are larger in diameter giving us better support, and are free from the collars that cause hang ups.  They will all be the same height, about 240 feet.  If the lake rises any more than that we will have to put in extensions that will be located under the deck. 

He is also replacing more of the old Styrofoam with new encapsulated foam on 7 of the finger piers.  Both of these tasks will be ongoing projects over the next few years until the entire pier is completed both with new support posts and new encapsulated foam.
