McKinley is being updated in 3 phases. The north section has already been updated with floating docks. The center section will be updated at the end of this season, and the south section next year. It will be a big improvement over what we have now. We had a terrible weed problem this year. They had milfoil(sp?) problems earlier in the season and sprayed for that in early July. Then about a month later another weed came in and the county was dragging their feet, and doing nothing. During the Milwaukee Yacht Clubs Grand Prix race all the boats were getting stuck in the weeds in the harbor and everyone was having to jump in the water to clear the weeds off before racing. On the J35 I was crewing on there were clumps on weeds as big as a volkswagen wrapped around the bottom of the boat. Finally after alot of pressure from everyone, the county spayed for this 2nd weed and now the harbor is back to normal. You should see a big improvement in McKinley Marina over the next 2 years.
Also, since I am writting this comment in the sailboat names thread I guess I should make this pertinent to the thread. The latest name that we are considering for our boat is Lone Star (both of our children were born in Texas). I suppose this name breaks your rule of a one word name, but it really is no different than a single word two sylable name, is it?
