Wild Rose Marina

Date   2014-06-04

For the better part of 6 months (deepest winter aside) Blue Water Systems has been working at Shushwap Lake installing a marina of sizable proportions. This marina includes a concrete floating wave attenuator or “break water,” that measures 600 lineal feet by 10 feet wide and is 7 feet deep. With 4 aluminum headfloats and 53 aluminum finger floats, this marina has capacity for 106 boat slips. Since Shushwap Lake has a 4 meter seasonal lake level adjustment, Blue Water Systems designed and engineered an anchoring system to accommodate for this using Seaflex elastic anchoring and pin anchor piles. The 120 foot aluminum pier and 80 foot aluminum gangway are built to provide wheelchair accessibility to the floats. All in all Blue Water Systems has been responsible for the marina, pier, anchoring and electrical design, engineering, fabrication and installation of this remarkable project. It is scheduled to be complete in time for boating season this summer.
