Important Information Regarding Cove 1 Boat Launch Ramp

On Wednesday (4/8) a member made us aware of a problem at the Cove 1 launch ramp that was also confirmed by one of the Fishing Club members.

There is a drop-off on the launch ramp that will impact members launching their boats if they have a long trailer or you back your trailer deeper on the ramp.  On Thursday morning our maintenance team placed warning markers so that you will know the point of the drop-off.  If you continue to use the Cove 1 launch ramp please observe the markers and launch at your own risk (see picture below).

If you are concerned regarding launching your boat in the interim as we determine what we can do to address the problem we suggest using the marina launch ramp or the cove 9 launch ramp.  We will update members again after we can determine our plan of action.  Look for an update on
