January 2017 Greetings

Happy New Year to all at Driftwood Marina!

In current news, the big storm of January, 2017 is finally behind us! Phew! Although all are safe, we did sustain major damage.  As of Sunday, January 22nd, we have already had two engineers out for damage/repair estimates and are actively working to get repairs started as soon as possible.  Our first and most important objective is to make everything safe. We are working on restoring power to J shed and getting everyone who was displaced in A and B sheds back into their slips. We would like to thank all of you for your understanding and cooperation.

The bathroom repair project is going ahead as planned; please remember the bathrooms will be closed on February 4th for about 6 weeks.  Portable toilets with hand washing stations will be brought in, however, there will be no shower facilities during the repair project. Thank you for your patience!

Now, to the good stuff…We are eagerly planning the 2nd annual Soup Social for our berthers on Sunday, March 26th! Kathy will have several homemade soups for you to enjoy. The event will be from noon to 3pm, weather permitting (like and watch our Facebook page for updates).  We look forward to seeing you!

Looking ahead, we will be having a spring clean-up and Nautical Swap Meet, planned for the end of April.  Look around and gather your unwanted boating paraphernalia.  It’s bound to be a treasure to someone else!

Happy Boating,
