The PI launch improvement project commenced yesterday with installation of the site fencing and delivery of the excavation scoopshovel (see pics below).

Alternatively, that equipment may be the EBRPD's answer to the ongoing dog poop problem?

Several of us launched from the Pocket Beach immediately adjacent to the radio station entry road. Main issue with that pathway is getting down/up thru the large boulders. Most of us resorted to taking rig and board down/up separately.

It also will be good idea to sail back in as close to where the radio station fence comes down to the water as possible and then stay close to shoreline boulders as you come up to the beach. That is the area that Carol and I cleared of major rock impediments. Sailing in to that beach from the south close to the riprap is more problematic, with many submerged rocks to catch your fin, fishing lines, etc.

Photos below may help evaluate.

The two “excavation subcontractors” I spoke to indicated they plan to start digging on Monday, Sept 10th. Given the RFP estimate of 31 working days for completion of this project, that gives some hope that all this work will conclude by the end of October.

Cheers, David

Too many steps and no whitecaps - but love the tile work!

Good session at HLS today around 4PM, after abandoning PI.
