Has anyone used the boat ramp at the park lately? This area is shallow and in past years it gets so full of grass that you can hardly get away from the ramp and make it out to the channel. Last year my trailer had so much grass hanging on it that it looked like a duck blind. I was worried about it fouling my prop and blocking up my water intakes on the lower unit.

Jerry, I don't know if it has anything to do with the dredging they are doing there or not, but the vegetation is not nearly as high this year. I was just up there a couple weeks ago. In years past I would run directly across from the ramp to the other side of the harbor, then follow the buoy markers out. This year I saw a lot of guys running directly from the harbor mouth to the ramp because a lot of the weeds are not high enough to foul your motor. FYI, though, the wind does still blow free floating weeds into the ramp area, meaning your trailer bunks will get covered unless you bring a rake. Good luck.
