Block Island Seeks New Dinghy Dock for Great Salt Pond


Block Island Times: Determined not to have a repeat of last summer, the [Block Island] Harbors Committee is doubling down on its plans for a new dinghy dock to serve boaters in the Great Salt Pond.

At their meeting on Dec. 21, members of the Committee pored over a draft letter requesting funds from the town for the acquisition of a dinghy dock. Member Carl Kaufmann thought the language should be clarified and state that the dinghy dock would be in New Harbor and that it would be for transient boaters, not for “residents to park dinghies there all summer.”
