Great Lakes Shipyard was awarded a contract by Whiskey Island Marina to fabricate a new floating breakwater.

The Shipyard will fabricate two 150’ long steel cylindrical modules that will be bolted together and anchored in the lake bottom in front of the marina. The project is to be completed by mid-November.

The 10-foot diameter breakwater is used for wake attenuation to protect the boats and docks in the marina basin from heavy weather and is ballasted to the 6.5’ waterline.

The Shipyard built a similar floating breakwater for Perry’s Landing Marina, Erie PAin 2010. That project involved the assembly of five 40’ x 5’ wide x 8’ sections, ballasted to the 4.5’ waterline.
