Out with the Old - In with the New

The LMYC Buoy Team completed diving and tether repair on all LMYC Mooring Buoys this weekend and began the task of removing and replacing old failed buoys with new shiny ones and new numbers.

The remaining buoys will be refirbished with new numbers and replaced if bad over the remainder of the Summer.

Another BIG thanks to North Texas Marine for loaning us this beautiful camo work boat that has been so incredibly helpful working with the buoys.

NEW MARINA ENTRANCE BUOYS AND LIGHTS

Marina Management and Personnel, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and Lake Murray Yacht Club all came together last Friday to deploy 2 new Marina entrance LIGHTED Marker buoys.

LMYC donated much of the material, OHP helped to locate the markers in the correct location and Marina personnel and equipment set the new solar LED lights held in place with 300 lb anchors and new galvanized chain.

July 3 is a moonless night and we hope all will enjoy the new lighs as you return to the Marina after the fireworks show.

Thanks to everyone, Chad from the Marina, Officer Groeber from OHP, and the LMYC for this great improvement to our Marina.

LMYC Members Repairing Buoy
LMYC Members Repairing Buoy
Did You Know?.......

June 8, 2016.  The tie-up buoys located in many coves on Lake Murray were donated to the State of Oklahoma by the Lake Murray Yacht Club.  Under agreement with the State, LMYC provides for maintenance and repair of the buoys.

The buoys are available to all boaters on a first come - first serve basis.  Anyone noting a problem with a buoy should notify the LMYC.

Many of the buoys originally placed on the lake have failed and a number of the existing buoys have fallen in to disrepair.

LMYC has developed a repair plan and has received permission from the State to begain maintenance of existing buoys. As of June 6, 2016, all but 5 of the existing buoys have been dived for inspection.  20 buoys received new tethers and one additional was repaired.

It is expected the remaining 5 buoys will be inspected the weekend of June 8.  Approval has been received to set a limited number of new buoys.  This effort, and renumbering of existing buoys will begin the next weekend. 

LMYC has met with State Park officials to review the plan and have received their general concurrence.  The plan and budget are being submitted to Parks and Recreation for approval.  The plan allows for maintenance of the existing buoys and as many as 13 new (replacement) buoys to be deployed this summer at locations approved by Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Support the buoy program, join the Lake Murray Yacht Club.

Buoy Restoration Under Way
Buoy Restoration Under Way
29 Dives - 20 Buoys With New Tethers
LMYC Members spent most of the weekend diving and restoring tethers on the lake's mooring buoys.  Scuba J made 29 dives inspecting tethers and anchor blocks and added new wire rope tethers to 20 buoys.  With only 5 more dives remaining, attention will now move to replacing damaged buoys, getting new numbers and reflectors in place, and hopefully anchoring some new buoys at approved locations.

A Big thanks to NORTH TEXAS MARINE OF GAINESVILLE for loaning their maintenance boat for the effort.  The job would have been almost impossible without that work boat.
