Cruz Bay Dinghy Dock Repairs Forthcoming, According To VIPA


The Cruz Bay dinghy dock will be repaired in the next few months.

Residents of St. John can soon expect to see repairs completed at the damaged dinghy berthing dock in Cruz Bay, according to V.I. Port Authority Executive Director Kenn Hobson.

VIPA’s engineering department is currently soliciting a contractor to repair the dock that was damaged during several storms during the 2010 hurricane season, Hobsen explained.

A contractor should be selected within the next 30 to 45 days and repairs will begin shortly after when VIPA issues a Notice to Proceed, according to VIPA’s executive director.

Hobsen understands that the St. John boating community has been frustrated with the current conditions of the dinghy dock and asks for their continued patience as VIPA works expeditiously to make the necessary repairs, he added.
