McKinley Marina Opening


After seeing 2 boats in the Outer Harbor and wondering why I was still on dry land I stopped by and had a chat with Clarke Johnson today. As always he was pleasant and informative.

USCG Boat House - apparently they are missing a permit to tear it down. So as soon as the permit is issued the project will get back on track.

McKinley early opening: It has been a tradition for McKinley to permit slip holders to bring their boats to the marina before its official opening day of May 1st. The quid pro quo has always been that the marina does not provide any services. I asked Clarke if he had set an "early arrival" date in mind. He laughed and told me "It's up to God. There is still 12 inches of ice in the marina!" So he knows we want to get in as soon as we can but also but also realizes that only ice boats could dock at the moment!
