    yes red line is the new wall...yes and no... the old sea wall was 32-35' wide... see the attached pic... the red line was the old sea wall at the surface... does that help you to see how much more (usable) room there will be?

    Many more boats now in the basin and a launch ramp that is no wider than before.
    So that the ramp can become more crowded.

    The new dock space will be great for sitting and having lunch,spooling up a few reels or even rigging up and baiting your hoopnets.I guess i'll have to wait and see.I never thought the ramp needed anything but maybe re-surfacing the ramp itself.But i'm pretty efficient at getting in and out of the water without looking like an idiot.

    I know you're probably pulling our leg on this one, but I guarantee you we will see much more of that going on. Agree on how well the ramp has served us given the amazing amount of traffic it saw. I will reserve judgement on the "upgrade," but I am hopeful.

    Overall it looks horrible. Now there is no breakwater so wakes will be in the basin at the docks and at the trailer. They really needed a second opening to allow for one-way in and a one-way out traffic and to move the breakwall out about 30 feet. How do you get off either end of the two docks (or anywhere for that matter) without doing a donut in the middle of the basin? I bet the designer never set foot on a trailer boat or asked anyone a single question. It is all about the look of the two piers.

    The piers will have a cement wall under them I am sure to block the wakes. Agree with the only one opening thought though.

    The opening to the basin directly in-line with the launch ramp only makes sense if your running a seal tour bu$$ine$$...

    October 22nd update. I nearly had a cow when I saw what I can only hope to be a temporary wall at the left side of launch ramp. I think my blood pressure will return to normal in a few more hours. Still optimistic for next year at our beloved launch ramp.

    Have you ever had a 400+ pound Sea Lion try and board your boat with your kids on it? Not a fix, trust me.

    I just got back from checking on the progress.That steel wall better be temporary.If it isn't the basin with an added dock will be a lot smaller.

    Please enlighten me. Why does the "seal boat" get exclusive access?

    With that opening in the center, It's going to be a washing machine in there. They are going to have to have channel buoys so you can avoid the pier fisherman's lines wrapping your props. Less parking because of the pier fishing. Looks like they let a dumb Ass design it.

    Better attorneys. Tourists concessions have deeper pockets.

    They have been running that commercial business forever. We are just recreational guys. I've seen the seal boats go out of south shores launch ramp to see the mission bay seals.
    Do what i did and put your boat in a slip till its done. Although i might just leave it forever now.
