Blue Ridge Dock back in business at Aqualand Marina

By Pamela A. Keene
 
Aqualand’s Blue Ridge Houseboat Dock is back and open for business after its tangle last September with the remnants of Hurricane Irma. 
 
“Previous slip-holders are being given the chance to get their original slips back before we open the space up to the public,” said Patrick Kenney, marina manager. “The concrete dock has been rebuilt with a more rigid substructure, underwater bracing and new power pedestals at each slip. It’s known for its beautiful views toward the Blue Ridge Mountains.”
 
The dock experienced damage when Hurricane Irma passed over Atlanta and Lake Lanier last fall. At that time, some of the dock’s slip holders elected to move their boats to other marinas.
 
Repairs were completed by Browns Bridge Dock Company and former slip holders have the month of April to respond about whether they want their previous slip. “After that, we’ll open up the unleased slips to the public,” Kenney said. “It’s a beautiful dock and a great location with stunning views.”
