The issue is the design and location of the attenuator

Based on professional advice, the POEM proposal for a 160m Berthing Pocket and Fixed Panel attenuator provides ample space for Cruise Ships and maximum all-weather protection for Snug Cove, delivering a safe anchorage, practical access and maximum marina capacity.

The Crown Lands proposal using a floating attenuator would not achieve a safe harbour, will significantly reduce marina potential and restrict access.

There is confusion between the Cattle Bay Marina proposal and the Snug Cove – Safe Harbour project. They are two completely separate projects;
The Cattle Bay Project is a Private Development (as is the Boydtown Marina Project), whereas the Snug Cove Project is a Government funded / Community project.
