Sandwich, MA, Boat Launch to Receive Upgrade

The Massachusetts Department of Fish & Game has awarded the town of Sandwich $6,920 to repair the public boat launch facility at the Sandwich Marina, at the eastern end of the Cape Cod Canal.

The funds will be used to repair the ramp and install lights to make launching safer in the dark.

The money comes from Marine Recreational Fisheries Development Fund, generated by recreational saltwater fishing license fees, and is part of the 5th round of funding since the state saltwater fishing permit system began in 2011.
