Mountain Point Boat Launch
By John A. Beck

I read in the paper that the City of Ketchikan accepted ownership from the Sate for the property including the Mountain Point boat launch.

I use the Mountain Point boat launch on a regular basis and I am trying to figure out what the $300,000.00 dollar deferred maintenance is. I do have some ideas.

1.Dredge the area to allow a boats to launch at low tide. Needed? Yes.
2. Onsite boat backerupper. Needed? Some people really could use this.
3. Onsite boat and truck rinseroffer. I could use that for sure!
4. Onsite fish filleter and baggerupper? Now you are talking!
5. Onsite tellmewherethefisharebiting person? YEA!!!!
6. 6000 free Mountain point yearly launch Permits? I am first in line!!
7 ??????

Some of the above is not maintenance but I can still spend the money at Mountain point. I hope you see where I am coming from. I will be watching where the $300000.00 is spent. I do realize it is a pile of money to me but it won't go real far in the real world. I hope everyone will hold the City accountable and see that the $300K is at the least spent at Mountain Point Launch. I would like to see something.

Keep you eyes open for some GREAT improvements. If you don't see any WE should gang up and ask some questions.
