Boaters will see improved stern ties when visiting Jedediah Marine Provincial Park this fall. The stern tie pins and chains in Deep Bay have been upgraded with the replacement of several pins and all of the chains with galvanised materials. In addition, a high-visibility marker has been added to make each of the 17 stern ties visible along the shoreline. This project was initiated by the BC Marine Parks Forever Society (MPFS) and completed by the Park Operator, Innovative Aquaculture Products Ltd. of Lasqueti Island. MPFS supplied all materials and shared the installation costs with BC Parks.
Boaters will find that using stern ties has many advantages over swinging on their anchor. Safety is enhanced as clambering over slippery rocks is eliminated. Trees will no longer suffer abrasions and the seabed will enjoy less scouring from anchor chains being dragged around. Go to bcmpfs.ca for more information on BC Marine Parks Forever Society.
