jr- I'm talkin mid 80's and earlier! Maybe before your time, lol! At least I know where you mean by downriver- Romulus,Wyandotte,"Taylor-Tuckey", River Rouge, Ecorse, Gibraltar, to name a few. I didn't know Grosse Ille had a public ramp. I know someone who lives at the south end, by the airport (if it's still there). There also used to be a place called Dearborn Marina. I don't know what happened to it after the old man who owned it died. It was on the Rouge River, between Jefferson Ave bridge the Fort St bridge (if memory serves me correct), or near the Ford Casting plant, where the freighters come to unload ore.
