The Chesapeake Yacht Club has announced the completion of its new floating dock. This state-of-the-art facility provides 38 deep water slips for yachts up to 70 feet long and can accommodate a wide range of powerboats, sailboats, and catamarans.
In announcing the opening, Commodore Ed Shelby said: “We have invested millions of dollars and spent years planning and designing these new slips to provide our members with the finest docking facilities available. Over 60 tons of steel piles, 100 tons of floating dock, and 11 tons of electrical cable were used to construct this new dock. It is designed to withstand wind loads up to 100 miles per hour and storm surges over 6 feet.”
