PAVING OF PARKING AREAS

Good news!  After years of “negotiating”, we have received permission to pave our parking lots, both at the Marina and Sunset Grille.  Paving of our parking area will provide a number of benefits, including improved parking, elimination of dust during dry spells and ponding during heavy rains, and provide a cleaner run-off following rains.

The plans and specifications for the paving are complete and have been submitted to three companies for bids.  The work will take place during the off-season, probably November and December, and will occur in sections so that access and parking is disrupted as little as possible

We will keep you posted as more specific details of the work and schedule are known. 

BLUE ANGELS’ HOMECOMING SHOW

Since much of the Blue Angels Beach Show was cancelled due to weather, you may want to plan now for their Homecoming Show scheduled for November 8-9, 2019, with a fantastic night show on Friday.   It’s not too early to plan for that weekend.

 

MARINA APARTMENT DISCOUNT

 

The Marina apartment is offered at a discount rate from October 1st until March 31st.  Contact the Marina office for information, rates and availability.  See out website, www.myholidayharbor.com, for photos or you can get a tour from the marina staff.

BOAT CARE   

We offer two boat care services that may be of interest during the off-season:

  • Detailing – The off-season is a great time to get your boat looking like new. Our in-house detailing service can provide anything from a simple wash to complete detailing, including compounding, waxing, buffing and metal polishing.

 

  • Run and Wash Service – If your boat will be sitting over the off-season, we offer a service that includes pulling the boat down from storage on a monthly basis, putting it in the water, starting and letting it run to get to up to temperature, pulling it out of the water and giving it a wash inside and outside before returning it to storage.  This helps with maintaining batteries and keeps the engine from sitting all winter long, as well as maintaining the appearance of your boat.

 

If you are interested in either of these services, please contact the marina at 850-492-0555.

PIE OF THE MONTH

The October Pie of the Month is Bushwacker  --  Like a drink in a pie!

Arrived mid December so it was very open. They had us dock at the restaurant dock for the night. Restaurant is basic but the food and service was good. New docks.
