C O V I D -19 Operational Plan

Friends of Shediac Bay/SBYC crane launch

Client/Volunteer Communique:

In order to ensure the health and safety of crane volunteers as well as boat owners, in light of the COVID-19 situation, we have prepared an Operational Plan. The Plan outlines the procedure that we have adopted for the launching of boats and stepping of masts on the wharf area of the SBYC that addresses health and safety concerns that have become best practices and standard in business in order to prevent any community spread of the virus.

What this means for boat owners/crane operators/volunteers:

Boat owners are required to schedule their launch with Bob Boudreau (506-530-0181), as only scheduled lifts will be permitted at this time. Owners are required to have 2 helpers and are required to arrive with community masks and gloves (PPE). There will be a hand sanitizing station at the security gate. Crane operators and volunteers are likewise required to arrive with PPE (Gloves and masks). Additional gloves and masks will be on-site to provide for any need to replace damaged PPE. There will likely be no washroom available onsite- Plan ahead.

Only one boat will be launched at a time, with other scheduled boats to remain in a queue outside the launch area. Boat owners, crane operators, and volunteers will be met by a designated COVID Oversite Officer (COO) who will screen all with a brief health questionnaire. He/She will record the names of boat owners as well as the helpers in the unlikely event that contract tracing is required. Hands will be sanitized, and PPE put on prior to backing down to the crane.

There will be 2 crane operators and 2 volunteers on site who will work with boat owners and helpers. Their names will also be recorded for possible contact tracing. They will sling the boat and hoist it into the water. The mast will then be stepped and rigged. Immediately thereafter the boat is to be motored out of the basin to their mooring dock. Hand signals will augment communications hindered by facial masks.

Throughout the process, the COO will oversee operations to ensure compliance. The physical distance of 2 m is to be maintained at all times. Extra care is to be taken for a brief period of close contact as necessary to secure the mast, with extra attention to respiratory hygiene when briefly in closer contact.
Trailers are to be immediately removed by one of the owner’s helpers. The boat is not to temporarily moor to the piles in SBYC basin, but rather to immediately depart.
Our Plan will slow the process down somewhat, but these steps will be necessary in order to facilitate compliant launches.

Contact Mark Bridges (506-531-7732) for any clarification. Thanks for your cooperation.
