The boat ramp at Children’s Beach has been repaired for now. There was a deep trench between the concrete slab and the finger pier on the north side of the ramp for several weeks. This was an extreme hazard to the boaters using the ramp and the general public. I’m glad nobody broke an ankle and no boat trailers were damaged while the deep trench was there. I’m not sure who did the repairs but it looks like they used a combination of stone dust, gravel and large stones. This is a temporary repair until the next easterly wind washes everything out into the harbor. Here are some shots of the repair work.
