New Las Gatas Pier

When we paddled past the Las Gatas pier this morning, it looked like all of the replacements were in, ready to use and looking great.

When we went by on Friday morning, it wasn't ready, but now it appears to be. It looks wonderful with the floating dock.

Go try it out!

Great! makes you wonder why they had enough sense to put a floating dock there, but not at the town pier.

Big difference. Floating piers are designed to move up and down with the tides. But they don’t fare well with horizontal ocean surge. Las Gatas is pretty protected by the surrounding reef. For the main pier to survive the periodic tropical surges that enter the bay a large breakwater would need to be layed. . I don’t believe that would go over well with environmentalists. Without a breakwater a floating main pier would likely not survive more than a couple seasons.
