Due to the draught in recent years, the water level of Lake Mead has dropped to a record low. For this reason, Lake Mead Marina had to be relocated. The marina has been a popular launch place since the 1940's. With just a handfull of civilian 'tug' boats, the marina was moved in it's entirety. It was moved to Hemenway Harbor on the south side of the relocated Las Vegas Bay Marina.
