    Just a heads up to anyone who uses the Marina del Rey launch ramp. The
    county has got the normal parking entrance torn up for a remodel.

    You have to enter the launch ramp from a temporary entrance on Mindanao
    Way north of the usual entrance. Hours are from 6 AM to 8 PM. The guy at the
    gate says this will be until about June 1.

    You can only get the paid parking pass those hours. The temp entrance is just past where you normally exit. You can leave anytime. If you don't have the paid parking or it's not visible and readable you will get a ticket. Mine cost $62 because I left it face down on the dash. It's only good for 24 hours also.

    Man thanks a lot you just saved me from a very bad morning! I am guessing that you have to take Mindanao all the way West to where it makes a donut and then return to the gate. Thanks again and I will try to post an update on my return tomorrow. Hardcore

    The entry is immediately West of the existing exit, they open 2 gates to let you drive thru the old boat storage yard. They were late this morning and we had to park on Mindanao partially blocking traffic while waiting for them. Do not drive into the exit by mistake even though there is a big sign saying it's the "entry", spike strips await you. Good luck, Hardcore.

    MDR launch ramp main entrance is still closed for remodel.

    Now they say until June 15.

    Temporary entrance still open 6AM to 8PM. If the gate guy is on
    time in the morning. Be prepared to wait.
