The staff is terrific. Early in the season I had a problem with connecting to their upgraded GCFI electric; had to leave. The y gave me a name and number of a marine electrician. I spoke with him and he gave me suggestions on how to solve the problem. It worked. So, now I’m back there and happy. It’s a shame that there doesn’t seem to be any progress on rebuilding the restaurant, but the store is open. Just came back from there and it was good to see how much busier it is now. That’s great. The Dockmaster is a delight as us the staff.

Marina Response:
Hi Joe, sorry you had an issue with the GFI system but it may be worth figuring out why you have a ground fault. It protects life and property and it is worth fixing. We had at least one million dollar picnic boat with an arcing main wire in their panel and the feedback system picked it up. His box had severe burn marks and who knows what could have happened. NOTE that eventually all marinas will have to go with GFI protected systems to meet the National Electric Code. We can help you with a great ABYC electrician who can help you find the ground fault quickly and usually inexpensively. Call us at 631-597-6073. Also note that we now have self-service GFI breakers on each slip (two per pedestal) so no longer can one boater trip another. MOST boaters are doing great on our system and can have peace of mind that their boats are safe from ground faults. Only a small percentage of boats have an issue and once corrected perform as they should. All the best and we hope to see you back.
