No port in a storm

Boaters are no longer able to tie up at ‘D’ Dock in the Nanaimo Boat Basin. The dock has been permanently closed by Nanaimo Port Authority due to safety concerns and a faulty electrical system. Bernie Dumas, Nanaimo Port Authority president and CEO, said the dock is the oldest in the Boat Basin and has been repaired numerous times, but has finally reached the end of its life span. It will remain closed until it is replaced by the new operators, Pacific Northwest Marina Group. - Chris Bush photo
