Marina expansion put on hold

ADVERTISEMENT

Plans to expand Charleston Marina, a city-owned marina in South Carlina, have been shelved until the economy and boat-buying habits improve, according to a story in The Post and Courier, a Charleston daily newspaper.

The plan was to extend the docks 140 feet farther into the Ashley River. Adding the extra dockage, at a cost of about $5 million, would be better done when boating is on the upswing, Robbie Freeman, managing partner of the City Marina Co., told the newspaper.



“We’re still optimistic about doing it,” he said.



The expansion was expected to add about 40 slips for boats up to 80 feet. The marina currently has about 450 slips, mostly for smaller boats. About a third of the slips are set aside for transient dockage, the newspaper reported.
