Mark Your Marker

MARK “YOUR” MARKER ON THE NORTH, MAIN OR SOUTH CHANNEL!

PUT YOUR NAME ON THE PROJECT!

 Believe it!  ABWIG is dredging the channels!  For details, check the Local Notices to Mariners or go to Apollo Beach Waterway Improvement Group on Facebook or our website, www.abwig.org   Now is your chance to put your names on a gift to our town and boaters who enjoy our piece of paradise!

As the channel dredging and beach renourishment project closes, ABWIG is responsible for the aids to navigation marking the North, South and Main channels from the Bay to our interior waterways.  Sponsor one of these channel markers by making a donation and we’ll put your name on that marker!  Sorry, the plaque has no lifetime guarantee but your donation to ABWIG is guaranteed to improve our waterways!

The channel markers along the North Channel will be installed along a new, deeper route after dredging.  Channel Markers #1 and #2 are sponsored by Becky D., Sally M., Pat A., Melissa N., Steve N. and Aixa M.  The light on the jetty, several pilings and many dayboards on the North Channel are available.  Mark “your” marker!   

 

The dredging route will run inside the channel markers along the Main and South Channels, so these will remain in place, marking the deep channels after dredging, but you can still pick “your” channel marker, make your donation, and we’ll put your name on that marker for all to see!  Boaters who transit the Main and South Channels, please help ABWIG mark these deep, navigable channels!

 

The #1 and #2 markers at the entrance to the Main Channel have been designated for the Tampa Sailing Squadron’s $2500 donation but many dayboards and pilings are available along the Main and South channels.
