P3 cures planning paralysis at Dana Point
by Robert Wilkes
It is now more than 60 years since the transition from wood to glass fibre - the most pivotal event in boating history. Efficient production attracted millions to the water where they embraced a lifestyle of which their grandparents could only dream.
Municipalities responded by building immensely popular landmark marinas - the crown jewels of the waterfronts. The Marina at Dana Point in Southern California is a prime example. Currently at 2,409 slips, the marina, built in the 60s and 70s, is the largest on the west coast.
Located in the southern part of Orange County, the harbour is conveniently connected by the I-5 freeway and Pacific Coastal Highway to a huge population of outdoor-loving Californians. Cruising destinations such as Catalina Island, Newport Beach and San Diego are nearby, and the cliffside location makes Dana Point Harbor an iconic place.
