The so-called F-Float moorage at Percival Landing is closed until it can be replaced this year, the City of Olympia announced today. The float, which accommodates about 12 to 15 boats, is in front of the Harbor House, said Kip Summers, project engineer for the city.
It is being replaced because of deterioration; the city cut power to the float after a 2004 structural assessment raised alarm.
The vessel pump-out facility will remain open, but access will be only from the water, according to a news release. Other floats, including the D-Float and E-Float, will remain open for transient moorage.mbatcheldor@ theolympian.com
