Just took a ride down to Dana landing, the boat launch/ramp is Now closed and no parking signs are posted. Does anyone know If Shelter Island ramp is also closed? WTF!! How does stopping me from fishing have anything to do with the prevention of spreading covid-19? I’m not taking this lightly by all means, but really... I haven’t heard any reports of a tuna, or yellow tail much less a halibut contracting corona virus or transmitting it.

True, and unfortunately if they left the boat ramp parking open, all those people that want to go to the beach/bay would park there, rather than leaving the spots available for the boaters (a responsible activity in my opinion)

    Spoke to harbor patrol yesterday regarding this. He said exactly that, it’s private property at the marinas. And with that each year we get the property taxes, so I guess that 1% of boat value is good for something.

    I stopped by Mission Bay briefly yesterday. The launch ramp/parking lots in the back of the bay were closed and they had meter maids (male) sitting in their carts preventing anyone from entering or launching a boat at the ramp. I guess the beaches that were packed last weekend in SD ruined it for us. The board walks and walk ways were packed.
