    Default Whitter dock

    Was wondering if anyone has an update if they in fact made some repairs to the dock?

    There was talk that Whitter received money this past fall to improve the ramp. IE make it deeper.

    Default Right

    like last year when the city manager posted on this site about the million of $ they had to up-date last summer, but all they did was to dump gravel at the end of the launch..................

    Question Nothing yet?

    The big project they have for widening, extending floats, new ramps, etc. never did bid this winter, so it is a pretty safe bet that nothing will happen now at least until next fall. Does anyone know why the city's website is TU or if it has moved? All YukonTel could say was that they were working on moving it & they might be able to start on it next week???

    Whittier and their ramp improvement....either empty promises or incompetence. I've stopped listening to what's said about improvements.

    At a big minus tide, you can't launch there. But I've found that to be the case at Seward, too. I'd just like to at least see the rebar covered so you don't blow a tire.

    Default Web Site?

    What happened to the Harbor Masters web site? It used to have some information and a great direct link to the weather.

    Smitty's Cove is for sale. If you've got about a million laying around, you could be the one to solve the Whittier launch issues!

    Now people will have a nice place to go to change their shorts after they launch/retrieve using the existing ramps.
