Buccaneer Deadline Moved to March 26

We previously reported Buccaneer would have to have its jack-up rig, the Endeavour, out of Homer by today; however Deputy Harbor Master Matt Clarke said that was changed to March 26…


Clarke: “They’re currently at the outer face of our deep water dock and at this time they’re in final preparations for a planned departure that is targeting the 26th of March. That would be this coming Tuesday.”


Clarke explained the City is beginning a project to replace its fendering system…


Clarke: “And we have a window or deadline that we have to meet as far as the federal requirements for driving pilings in coastal areas, so the construction activity is not detrimental to the spawning salmon or the smolt that are released from estuaries during those months. So, we have a construction deadline that we are trying to meet.”
