That is interesting. The Y program that used the former Solomon Jacobs facility no longer operates and suggestions that provisions be made for local youth programs have not been met with enthusiasm.Dun Fudgin wrote:In the drawings I saw there would be space for the 13' Whaler and some outside lockers.Damon wrote: I am not aware of any plan to include any facilities for youth sailing programs.
I was a member of "Friends of the Harbor" a group which researched and discussed better ways to expand uses of the harbor. Increased moorings to increase revenue and lower waiting list times, Transient boater center and more community access/facilities.harbordog wrote: Where are these plans held or how would one get access to them?

It would be good to get a look before the public meeting.
outside lockers? that sounds useful. maybe a good start.
traditionally there were 2 slips available at the Harbormaster's dock for community access launches. Before the clean up project dismantled the floats system, the YMCA and SailGHS each had a launch tie up there.
When SailGHS relocated their access to Maritime Gloucester (which as suppose to be temporary until access to Solomon Jacobs park was reestablished) the YMCA had 2 whalers there.
once the new float system is complete it will have much more dockage available than the previous configuration.
