Power boats not allowed at public marina paid for by power boater taxes
Thanks, we are making a difference. ODNR is now requiring a public boat parking space to access the portable toilet dumping facility. We still need to work on access to the public restrooms and parking lot.
This is a pilot project in our local lake. It is to be a model for ALL public parks in the future. IF it is allowed to be operated as a private facility YOU or your CHILDREN will one day find your local park filled with private facilities that you are not permitted to access.
Be heard now or be excluded later.
Thanks Andy, Well written comments. You hit the nail squarely on the head.
i stayed overnight in this cove last weekend. i saw you back there. i was in the 32 sunsation tied up to the scarab and checkmate. i didnt relize that this was going on.
so you cant go to the bathroom? its public right? please explain. is some sailboat nerd going to fight you or something? if so i will go up there and pee this friday night.
Yes, We saw you come back in the Sunsation w/ Twins. Nice boat! The guy with the Checkmate sure has kept that girl in nice shape for her age. Next Friday come raft with us!
I was in the raft with all the different kinds of boats.
The dock slips are leased to individuals.The restroom, shelter house, picnic grounds, and parking lot are supposed to be public. The State contract with the local club says that they are to remain open to the public and that all courtesy docks are to be open to the public. The club has circumvented compliance by not designating any courtesy docks.
I have had the cops called on me 4 times for trying to access the facility. Every time there is no citation because we are supposed to be able to access, yet there is still the hassle. Earlier this year I was there helping my chronically ill brother in law ready his boat so the nieces could go swimming. I had a member of the club come up and yell in my face and puff his chest (in front of my one year old son) telling me to leave or he is calling the cops again. So, yes you may have someone pick a fight.
MOST of the sailors there are great guys. It only takes a few people to corrupt a system.
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
