New Pontoon for Schull

July 26, 2018 6:23 pm

The New pontoon is to open on Wednesday 1st of August. It is hoped all large Ribs and motor boats will berth here ,leaving the existing pontoon free for smaller dingy’s and tenders , as recently up to 60 Craft have been counted ,rendering the facility dangerous for boat users. The steps on the northside of the pier will become available 24/7 as the new Cape Clear ferry will in future use the head of the pier. Michael Murphy in Shelly D is photographed as the first Yacht to land on the pontoon, which is initially designed for smaller craft, due to the adjacent moorings making safe navigation difficult for larger boats.
