Coast Guard asks public to use caution during construction on N.J. Intracoastal Waterway

U.S. Coast Guard 5th District Mid-Atlantic
Contact: 5th District Public Affairs
Office: (757) 398-6272
PHILADELPHIA — The Coast Guard is asking the public to exercise caution while operating boats and watercraft on the Intracoastal Waterway in New Jersey while the Coast Guard makes repairs to aging navigational aids from late June through early July.
Boaters are requested to operate at a slow speed in the ICW while members of Coast Guard Aids to Navigation Team Cape May and the Coast Guard Dive Team remove damaged aids to navigation by conducting diving operations.
Boats causing wakes or coming too close to divers can cause a potentially dangerous situation for workers above and below the water.
"Our main priority is to keep waterway traffic and our workers safe while repairs to waterway aids to navigation structures are made," said Chief Warrant Officer Elijah Reynolds, officer in charge of Coast Guard Aids to Navigation station Cape May. "We are taking a proactive approach to repairs in order to prevent future potential hazards to navigation on the waterways."

To: Mariners planning to transit Shelter Harbor Marina Inlet Beach Haven New Jersey
From: SHMCA Staff Operations

Re: Underwater Hazard in Close Proximity to Marina Entrance

Be advised this date to use extreme caution – during the NJ State commercial dredging of the area outside the bulkhead a mechanical malfunction occurred disabling the equipment.

The resulting spoils were not able to be cleared from SHM inlet in time before the breakdown.

The area of the hazard has been marked however it is advised not to transit the inlet during low tide and no additional information is available at this time regarding the draft limits and depth of the debris.

It is anticipated to be cleared once repairs are made to the equipment next week.

Re: Update on State/Local Guidelines and Marina Ops.

We are pleased to announce the following permitted activities to further the safety of our community. We absolutely understand that some rules may be inconvenient however the health of our membership is paramount and in these challenging times - we must be following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health:

June 15th is the adjusted date to have boats and Sport Ports removed from surface storage (parking and picnic area).

• Mask protocol enforced- Masks must be worn on premises and may be removed while on boats at discretion of owner
• Fresh Water system to be energized on all docks by Friday April 24
• Office, Clubhouse, Main Restrooms will remain closed until further notice (Contact Staff via phone during normal hours)
• The 12th Street restrooms will open with social distancing rules in effect (1 person per usage) Special sanitizing equipment on order
• Pool and Hot Tubs will remain closed until future guidelines permit
• Refrain from socializing/congregating by keeping tables and chairs off docks
• Ice machine will remain temporarily out of service

Contact Michael via phone to coordinate your boat and/or Sport Port water delivery. PPE (Mask/Gloves) must be utilized while on site.

Remember that all Contractors and Mechanics will need to wear their own PPE (Mask/Gloves) at all times while on SHMC property.

Please limit exposure to others by refraining from inviting guests to the boats during this period. Immediate family only.

Anyone who reports any signs of illness is advise to stay off the property and not quarantine on the boat.

These are temporary limitations that will be reevaluated and reported on again in two weeks.

We appreciate your continued cooperation and wish you all to stay safe and in good health.
