Christmas Night

Liveaboard boaters from CYC and Gangplank Marina gathered around The Wharf firepit on Christmas night for some much needed camaraderie. Huge thanks to CYC for planning the event. The wood was a little wet from the rain but that didn’t stop the fire or anyone from having a good time.

J’s Farewell Party

Not long ago we received the news that our General Manager, Jerome Nickerson, would be leaving the marina to pursue other opportunities in Hawaii. J has been Gangplank Marina’s General Manager for a number of years. While we are sad to see him go, we certainly wish him well!

Return of the “Peggie”

The Peg Leg Award (AKA “Peggie”) was created in 2012 to recognize deeds that form the foundation of our community. The award is given in recognition of being a good neighbor. Why a peg leg? Because we live on boats! And because we think that a good neighbor often provides support beyond what we are capable of doing alone. The Peggie highlights the strong sense of community that makes living… Read More »Return of the “Peggie”
