    I have been very active in this process and it looks like we are one step closer to getting the ramp and basin redone. A lot of work and planning has been done and it looks like it might get done, even in the bad economy.

    I hope it goes thru, we launch out of SI all the time. It would be nice if they do what they are proposing.

    Step 1. Throw out all the homeless and hire security.
    Step 2. Charge a minimum fee and use it to fund above and below.
    Step 3. Hire someone to manage launch and retrieve as well as the dock.

    Enjoy.

    That would be cool but if the MLPA has there way we wont need to launch a boat anymore for a few fish. Just gotta go to the supermarket for fish thats imported here from another country. One that actually allows the people to enjoy its shores.

    Thanks for all your help though, would be cool to have a new ramp.

    That would be sweet. We launch out of MB for this reason only. Bait, travel time to the grounds, and lack of 5mph zone are all pluses in SI. Will watch for more news in the future. Thanks for all your hard work.:notworthy

    Didn't happen. I really wasn't excited on there plan. We need a real ramp with room to move and more dock footage. I guess we will be waiting a long time to come.

    Probably what usually happens to the money,especially taxes they sold you increasing for your special project,they spent it on pensions and salaries for those that lied to us to get elected.

    Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed to eliminate the Department of Boating & Waterways (Cal Boating) and transfer its functions to the Department of Parks and Recreation -- putting an end to a self-supporting, independent agency that has a 54-year successful track record of enhancing boating access, boating facilities, boating law enforcement and boating education statewide.

    Cal Boating and Waterways is the Dept that the Grant would be coming from and hopefully it will not disappear. I will contact my friends at the Port of San Diego and also Cal boating (who I addressed at their Commission meeting last year in San Diego), and see where this project stands. Projects are still being funded statewide. Maybe we just need to be a little more organized and proactive in getting this project done.

    I received an email from Boating and Waterways this morning. It looks like the planning is underway again. The body of the letter is as follows:

    "Hi Dwayne,

    Thank you for your inquiry. We are currently working on the Shelter Island Boat Launching Facility (BLF) project. Years ago, the Port received a DBW grant that is currently being used to design the project.



    As you may be aware, the Port originally requested funding to only replace the existing launch lanes. Upon further investigation and public meetings, the Port and DBW became aware that the size of the existing basin, along with quantity of boats entering and exiting during peak usage, caused a hazardous boating environment. So, a study was completed and public meetings were held to best identify the issues and prepare a plan to fix them. The new plan was identified and the Port has been working on design of that plan.



    To date, the 30% plans have been completed and DBW is expecting to receive 60% plans in the next month or two. With the 60% plans, the Port will apply for project permits from the California Coastal Commission/Army Corps/ Etc…. This permitting process usually takes approximately two years.



    Also, with the 60% design, the Ports engineers have been able to put together a realistic estimate of construction costs. By April 1, DBW anticipates receiving a grant request to fund the projects construction costs. If the application is approved and funding is included in the FY14/15 budget, funding should be available about the same time permits are.



    I hope this answers your questions? Both the Port and the State understand the importance of the Shelter Island BLF and are invested in providing a lasting safe facility that meets the needs of the San Diego boating community. Unfortunately, projects of this magnitude do take a significant amount of time, effort, and funding to complete. "

    The Commission rotates to various cities to have public input. There was only a few people there to comment even though I tried to drum up more support. I will try to make the fisherman more aware next time they meet down here.

    So how much do you think it will end up costing to launch? I'm figuring $10 per and maybe a yearly pass if one is desired.
