Gulfport Harbormaster Denis Frain unveiled a plan for a new marina building that could accommodate liveaboard mariners, add a day room for sailors, and allow for boat lifts. It also included a slightly larger ship store. Plans for the marina upgrade also include a small park for liveaboard and transient boaters.
The marina building will include enhanced facilities for liveaboards and other boaters.
At last Thursday’s workshop, Harbormaster Frain proposed adding ten (10) 20,000 pound lifts that would stay in the same footprint as existing slips.
“Build it and see if we’ve filled it,” Harbormaster Frain suggested.
Council will discuss this at a workshop meeting at 4 p.m. on May 21.
