First is last we heard the Rocket was out of business Cordell. One of our winter get aways up north we were reading the local papers and basically it sounds like the Jet Express is screwing the Rocket people.
According to the paper (a month ago) the town of Put in Bay cancelled the dock lease (several months early) with the Rocket Ferry service. Only explanation is total BS until you read the fine print. (I tired calling the Rocket and there was no answer or message on their phone)
Guess who the president of Jet Express inc. is?? Mayor of PIB!!
The Jet Express people now have three boats and rumor was/is that they did'nt like the competition from an "outsider" and giving him dock space.
The owner of the docks is also partners with guess who?? The freagin Mayor!
You can get the effect of PIB by driving to West Harbor Peninsula and jumping on the Miller ferry over to PIB. (I refuse to give the jet any of my money)About a 1/2 hr drive from CP.
All those guys are in cahoots together. All the bar owners on PIB abd the ferry people and the polititians!
The other trick is if the lake is nice run to the next island north which is Middle Bass and get a dock there. The state just bought part of it and it now has shore power but not showers yet.
Two way cool Tiki bars walking distance from the docks. The other trick is to jump on the $3. ferry from that island to PIB. Take a shower and party there and then go back to your boat on Middle.
Docks are a major premium on all the island and they don't cut anybody any slack.
Really kind of ruining it for a lot of us.
