I received a call this afternoon from Craig Stanton the manager of the Redondo Beach boat hoist, parking lot and marina at the north end of the harbor...
He had some bad news that he wanted me to pass on to our kayaking community that uses their facilities and the hand launch...
The parking lot will be open only for short term parking for to-go orders at the restaurants...the beach access, boat hoist, hand launch, and piers will all be closed as of midnight tonight...:eek:
AND WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL APRIL 24th:the_finger:

I vaguely get the launch ramp closures as people are taking theirs boats out with 4 or 5 people on board, but kayaks? Thats the epitome of keeping your distance. Lazy politicians and enforcement. Just easier to make 1 rule covering everybody.

Damn. Jim do you know if the platform launch behind the pool is still open?
Yup...personal watercraft hand launch facility...
The City is ordering extensive additional closures, effective at midnight.
These include various closures within the harbor area.

Even worse in SE Florida, all beaches, boat ramps and non-essential businesses are closed. Issuing tickets for up to $500 and/or 60 days in jail for violations. Physical exercise and going to get food are considered essentials -- kayak fishing meets the criteria, just need to find a good place to launch that's still open.
