Lake Shasta Marina Expands with More Meeco Sullivan Galvanized Steel Docks
Packers Bay, Lake Shasta, CA— Spring has finally come to Northern California just in time for the Memorial Day weekend, and Shasta Marina Resort at Packers Bay has completed the installation of several more dock fingers to expand the service area for their large houseboat rental fleet.
Meeco Sullivan supplied the new galvanized steel docks with durable exposed aggregate concrete decking to complement all the other covered and open slip docks Meeco Sullivan has provided. Meeco Sullivan also manufactured new anchor winch platform docks earlier in the year to facilitate a more flexible and stable layout for the docks as water levels change in the lake.
Shasta Marina moved their docks to Packers Bay several years ago from O’Brien Inlet because it became too shallow during the drought. Now the marina extends more than 2,000 feet along 8’ to 12’ wide walkways, with 55 covered slips, 83 houseboat berths, and dock space for more than 50 rental houseboats and other visiting vessels, along with their on-the-water office and fuel dock. All docks are Meeco Sullivan’s unique box-truss galvanized steel frame design with exposed aggregate concrete decking.
“Packers Bay is a much deeper location than O’Brien,” said John Harkrader, marina owner. “The Meeco Sullivan docks and anchor platforms handle the weather conditions very well, and have been an integral part of our relocation, allowing a lot of flexibility in our marina layout depending on seasonal water levels.”
“Meeco Sullivan galvanized steel dock systems are the perfect solution for durable and flexible river and lake marina facilities,” said J. Mills, Western Region Sales Manager for Meeco Sullivan. “The docks are designed to accommodate concrete, composite, wood or aluminum decking, and the exposed aggregate concrete decking at Shasta Marina added an extra element of ambient functionality to their marina.”
