The Stave Lake boat launch floats have recently been replaced. The floats on either side of the ramp are a public amenity provided by BC Hydro for recreational boat users. The new floats were installed July 22 and cost Hydro $153,000. The previous floats were in place since the early 1980s, and according to BC Hydro spokesperson Will Mbaho, they were declared a public safety risk and had to be replaced. The boat launch is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to dusk.
