If you're going to use this ramp, I'd suggest you check it out at low tide to see where the rocks are relative to the transit marks. Also be aware that during a holiday weekend it turns into a zoo.

Not to mention when a 20 knot sou'wester kicks up it turns into a zoo on 'roids when everyone comes home at the same time...

 

Great amusement if you're watching from the sidelines tho.

The grass is greenest where you water it......If light is the fastest thing. Then how did the dark get there first?

Sound terrible, snoring, bagpipes, and no fish.  Should have stayed at home!
