The quality of the build of the new marina is second to none. Total Floating Systems (Brent Shipman and his merry band) are very efficient and thorough. Lived in many marinas but this is a very good quality build in my opinion.

It is great to see Christchurch getting a top quality area. Work ashore is good too with old piles and railway used to add features to the land side of things. Total boat holding space will be over double the number held in the old pile moorings.

A good job well done and built by Kiwi's.

It went up bloody fast! The road in there is starting to take shape with the car park.

Anyone knows why the berth positioned 90 degrees off, compare to the old pile moorings? Did the most common wind direction changed in the harbor? Also could be very awkward to get in on the SW part to the floater where the large poles are (presumably to protect the marina from drifting vessels entering to the dry dock. Other than that looks pretty.

It went up bloody fast!

There has been a team building it for over many months before things happened on the water. We had finished building our bits for it back in Oct and they got shipped down there back in early Nov. Due to the location and most marina stuff being built in the Nth Island, a lot of work went into getting everything ready in a big pile so when assembly started it was all there ready to go.

 

The bit I like about this marina compared to the first cock-up down there is this time I may get paid for all my goodies. I see goodies from the first marina are still in use down that way. Ours were the only components that made it thru the destruction unbusted. We build them tuff!!!

The old pile berths, on which I also kept my boat, where angled about 30 degrees from the southerly quarter winds which funnelled through the tank farm area. The strongest winds in the Dampier Bay area come from the NW'er which swirls around and are very gusty. The area is protected from swell. Vessels are unlikely to be moving around in the extreme southerly or NW winds as much as more gentler winds. With the outer pier located nearer to ships entering the dry-dock the largest force vessels are exposed to is that of tug wash. The berths are aligned to be bow/stern on to this. I'm sure you can all imaging the force exerted on a vessel beam on to a tug wash. So simply put the berths align to the greatest force to be placed on the vessel. There was another design that actually managed to fit more berths into the are but was discounted for several reasons.

There is lots of manoeuvring space between marina piers and between the outer pier berths and the training wall piles for the dry dock. The space is far greater than any manoeuvring space we had with the old pile berth set up. As a 13m long keel vessel we fit between the training wall and our berth easily, and they are only piles, not a continuous wall so easy to nip past close to one if you are crap at boat handling.

If you want to see interesting berthing in marinas go to Tauranga bridge, Opua, Bayswater or Chafers. Either wind or tide makes these 'fun' at times. I think Lyttelton will have the best marina in NZ very soon...

Thanks for the explanation, I was hoping it's not only to increase the number of berths. I can hear you really like it already. It looks much better than ever and you all right this is just the start. I can't wait to see when it finished.
