Hilton Head Island, SC, March 27, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- On Thursday, March 20th, 2014, Wexford Plantation celebrated the re-opening of their private lock system for their harbor. Their lock system, which is one of only three on the East Coast, was temporarily closed for restoration from Monday, January 6th until Wednesday, March 19th. This restoration project, followed one done approximately 10 years ago, included removing the lock doors for cleaning and repairs, as well as installation of new hydraulic lines and a state-of-the-art computer operated gate control system.
Wexford Plantation retained The Industrial Company (TIC) in Savannah, Georgia, Mike Majer’s Diving Service in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, and Electro Hydraulic Machinery Company in Pembroke Park, Florida, to complete the project, which came in early and on budget.
Wexford's Commodore, Torrey Glass stated, "Our recent lock refurbishment and the investment made by the Wexford Plantation Homeowners Association are indicative of this premier community's commitment to excellence in maintaining its harbor as a unique amenity."
Wexford’s lock system affords its members 24-hour deep water access to Broad Creek and the Intracoastal Waterway. This premier residential community is centered on its 37-acre inland harbor, connecting 138 privately owned docks and a private marina with 142 additional slips. The marina is accented by an elegant clubhouse with both fine and casual dining options along with a pool and Harbor Center. The Harbor and lock is supported by a full-time Harbormaster, Dockmaster and staff. The lock and harbor with its constant seven foot depth can accommodate vessels up to 70 feet in length with beams up to 19 feet.
