Fort Point no longer without pier

The Fort Point Pier opened today:

With its broad floating dock having a planked deck surface only 12.5" inches above the waterline, generous in cleats and other potential tie-up points, Fort Point Pier is perfectly suited as a FREE, public launch point to Boston Harbor for kayak, canoe, stand-up paddle board (SUP), sit-on-top (SOT), rowboat, scull, surf ski and windsurfer/sailboard.

The pier offers all amenities necessary for easy onshore parking, pickup, drop-off, and portage of a kayak or similarly lightweight watercraft.

So how deep/cleans the water? Could this be a new Esplanade-esque hangout/swimming dock? I think possibly...

I used to walk by there every day on the way to work and the water is pretty skanky. I wouldn't suggest swimming. One time (and only once) I actually saw people fishing there, but it must have just been for practice. I'm surprised anything can actually even live in that water. There were a couple of wild swans for a while, but they looked dirty and diseased.

But the channel water is a bit grimy and stale; probably due to runoff and poor currents. I wouldn't swim in there, but if you do let us know!

P&G's are of the harbor walk is a little known secret. Really nice area to go eat lunch, or take a walk.

So is that pier where The Channel used to be?

(maybe I was getting nauseous not because of the breathless, windy camera-work, but due to flashbacks to drunken nights at the same location.)

Yup, the pier is steps away from where the Channel used to be.
