MANELE SMALL BOAT HARBOR WOODEN FINGER PIER REPLACEMENTS TO BEGIN
MANELE, LANA’I — A capital improvement project for the DLNR Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation’S Manele Small Boat Harbor is scheduled to begin on June 26, 2017, that will include the removal of 11 existing wooden finger piers and installation of new aluminum framed finger piers with slip resistant fiber reinforced plastic decking, plastic lumber fendering, and cleats.
During the project, no temporary moorings within Manele Small Boat Harbor will be available. The existing ADA accessible finger pier at Slips 1 and 2 as well as the boat launch ramp will remain open throughout the duration of the project. The existing ferry pier at the harbor will also remain open.
The project is scheduled to be completed by August 31, 2017. The project has been contracted to Sea Engineering, Inc. for a cost of $789,799.
This project will help improve user safety and provide improved boating access for recreational and commercial vessel operators. The existing wooden finger piers have been deteriorating for many years and are in need of replacement.
