The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - PHO­TOG­RA­PHY BY CATHIE COW­ARD, THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

City work­ers con­tin­ued to re­move old wooden docks and pil­ings from the wa­ter around the Royal Hamil­ton Yacht Club on Thurs­day. The old docks at the RHYC and Hamil­ton West Ma­rina are be­ing re­placed with 450 new metal float­ing docks. The work should be com­pleted by the spring sail­ing sea­son. The project be­gan last year with the re­place­ment of the break­wall in the wa­ter off the Hamil­ton Water­front Trust Cen­tre. The break­wall helps calm the wa­ter in the area around the slips. In the photo be­low, pil­ings pro­trude from the wa­ter where an old dock has been re­moved.

The new float­ing docks ar­rive and are un­loaded at the Royal Hamil­ton Yacht Club. A large heap of old pil­ings is seen on the dock in the back­ground at left.

Wooden pil­ings from the old docks are re­moved from their moor­ings in the har­bour us­ing a ca­ble at­tached to a back­hoe.
