June 2017

 2017 marked a year of significant investment in the Great Harbors docks. These floats had been in service since 1992, when Hurricane Bob had destroyed our docks. When we began the work of disassembly, it was clear that the internal components on the Sally floats were eroded and badly rusted, probably since these components are subject to more concentrated waves and wakes from boats going up the Coonamessett River.

The Dock Committee worked with the Great Harbors Board of Directors, to procure completely new docks for Sally Lane. The floats were built to exceed the high standard of the originals, and were completed ahead of schedule and on budget by the lowest of three bidders.    Chris Tomasini

The docks are seasonal in that they are removed and stored in October and placed back in the water in the spring.  This process extends the life of the docks.

 Currently there are no openings for slips and tie-ups, however the "Dock Wait List" is available annually in mid July after all current boaters have been assigned slips
