Seawall Replacement Sequence Information

Marine Contracting Group (MCG) will be replacing damaged seawalls in Burnt Store Isles, which has been divided into BSI North (BSI-N) and BSI South (BSI-S). Marine Contracting Group has submitted a schedule to start work in the BSI- S section beginning Oct. 1.
The contractor must wait for delivery of a barge before beginning waterside work. The City is planning a workshop prior to October to discuss and answer any questions for the seawall replacements in Burnt Store Isles. Residents will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with designated Punta Gorda Canal Maintenance employees to discuss their individual seawall issues.

The current seawall replacement sequence information can be found on the City's website at http://ci.punta-gorda.fl.us/government/public-works/storm-related-seawall-failures

It's the law!

Welcome to the Burnt Store Isles Boat Club web site.  We are a group of people that reside in Burnt Store Isles and share common interests in boating and social events.  While our primary focus is boating, both cruising and fishing, we do have many social events.  We provide information for our members that relate to our waterways and provide information from other boating related entities.  Take the time to surf our website.  There is a vast amount of information available that is updated regularly.

 You do not have to own a boat to belong to the Club.  We encourage those without boats to join those that do for many of our cruises.  For those that fish, we have within the Boat Club, a Fishing Club.  They hold regular meetings and frequently bring in speakers.  We are a very friendly group of people that enjoy boating and getting together.

If you are a member of this community, please consider joining our great organization.  We live in one of the nicest estuaries in the country that boasts great boating and fishing, to say nothing of our proximity to the Gulf Islands and the Gulf of Mexico.  Click to read "member benefits"
