BREMERTON YACHT CLUB
The Bremerton Yacht Club reached out to Art Anderson to provide an independent evaluation of their marina. Their previous report was done in 2009 and marina. recommended a full replacement. The Bremerton Yacht Club wanted to see if that was still the recommendation.
The Bremerton Yacht Club intends to have a stronger emphasis on upkeep and replacing as needed to get the maximum service life possible out of the existing facilities. Art Anderson professionals carried out an extensive inspection of the marina, including an evaluation of the supporting utilities to and appurtenances on the float systems. A report was drafted which determined the following:
Because the overall condition of the entire marina is good and the maintenance level of care is very high, the lifecycle of the North walkway section is evaluated to be at least 15 years. The lifecycle of the rest of the marina is at least 25 years. These lifecycle determinations are based on a projection of when it will become less cost effective to continue repairing floats and connections than to replace them.
Three alternatives were offered to assist with immediately improving the lifecycle of the marina as a whole:
• Alternative 1: Re-Position the A Line (North) Walkway Float System – Relative order of magnitude construction cost estimate: $108,000
• Alternative 2: Install a New North Breakwater – Relative order of magnitude construction cost estimate: $450,000
• Alternative 3: Upgrade the A-String (North) Walkway Float System with wider and/or deeper floats – Relative order of magnitude construction cost estimate: $300,000-700,000
The Yacht Club management elected to pursue alternative three, which led to the next project.
