Block Island Dinghy Dock Controversy Continues
March 3, 2018
Block Island Times: The decision to reduce the amount of public space available for dinghies at the Block Island Boat Basin by half last summer appears to be in violation of an assent granted back in 1998, according to a member of the Harbors Committee.
The closure of half of the dinghy dock left boaters scrambling to find space for their dinghies and unleashed a torrent of letters to the town, The Block Island Times, and the Harbors Department complaining about lack of services available to boaters visiting the Great Salt Pond. Presumably, the reduction in space was to allow for the rental of additional slips to vessels staying at the marina.
