Courtesy dock at Bolivar Landing

Recommended Posts

I went out to Bolivar Landing for the first time since before the 4th of July, but didn't get to put in as the courtesy dock was not usable and no place to pull up the boat without tearing up the bottom on concrete or rocks.  I fish by myself or with my Dad who has Alzheimer's, so I need a dirt bank or a courtesy dock to pull the boat up.  Does anyone know when the courtesy dock at Bolivar Landing will be fixed and ready to use?

Thanks!

Let's clear up the difference between "tearing up the hull", and putting a little scratch on it. 😄 

Is it a fishing boat or is it an investment being preserved for resale value?   Pull that thing up on the concrete ramp long enough to park the truck and go fishing for crying out loud !     Use an old piece of carpet, piece of driftwood, or the floor mat from your truck if putting a little scuff on it bothers you.   

Not trying to be a jerk, but people that treat their boats better than they treat theirselves are not ENJOYING owning them.   To them it is just another thing to worry about.  It's a tool, use it.

I see guys spend 400.00 getting a hull protector installed.....then they worry about scuffing the hull protector.  I mean WTF? 😂

It is on the list of things to get done, many of the concrete tiles are off of it as well and will need replaced.  Think the crew may be there this week if all goes well.

:-)  Good point, it is an aluminum boat and it would just be scuffed paint and scratches, but for an hour, it just wasn't worth it.  For 4 or more hours, I probably would have put in anyway. 

There were people fishing on the north/west side of the ramp and I didn't want to be a jerk and pull up in them.

MOPanfisher - hopefully it works out and I could see the tiles on the rocks and didn't know if they would be reusable or not.
