Bellingham helps with Washington marina renovation

Cap Sante Boat Haven, located near the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Anacortes, Wash., recently completed a renovation that included the replacement of two of the marina’s docks. The new docks were manufactured by Bellingham Marine and installed by Culbertson Marine Construction, which completed work on the project in late January.

“We are slowly working to upgrade the entire facility to provide boaters with the highest standard of accommodations found anywhere else in the region,” Cap Sante Boat Haven harbormaster Dale Fowler said in a statement.

The marina has replaced about 40 percent of its 850 slips.

More than 33,000 square feet of docks were replaced by the port in its most recent work at Cap Sante — 132 new berths, plus two side-ties to accommodate vessels from 40 feet to 113 feet LOA. The new docks feature Bellingham’s Unibolt system with rounded finger ends, composite trim and polymer rub boards. The design also includes a cleat design that allows the position of the cleats to be easily moved.

Cap Sante Boat Haven is a publicly owned and operated facility managed by the Port of Anacortes.
