Over the course of the past few years Signal Mountain Lodge and Leeks Marinas have been dedicated to replacing all of our older 2-stroke engines with more environmentally responsible technology. We are proud to say that our entire marina rental fleet and all of our work boats now run on either 4-stroke or Evinrude E-Tec engines. These new engines are estimated to reduce air emissions by 75%, burn 35-50% less gasoline, and use up to 50% less oil than their old 2-stroke counterparts. Not only will these new engines reduce emissions, use significantly less oil, but they are more fuel efficient and require less maintenance. They are also much quieter than the previous models thus less disruptive to wildlife and customers providing a more pristine National Park experience. Our new outboard engines are better for Signal Mountain Lodge, our rental customers, and the environment!
Signal Mountain Lodge has also developed a Clean Marina Program, does extensive staff training in spill prevention, countermeasure, and cleanup procedures, and recycles fishing line at both of our marina locations. In addition we have installed triple wall fuel lines, breakaway valves, and numerous shut off locations to provide the best possible spill prevention options for our fuel systems.
