Fort Point no longer without pier
By adamg on Fri, 10/21/2011 - 3:02pm
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.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Weekend plans ...
... might change. Have kayak, will travel.
So how deep/cleans the water?
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.)
Pier location -near the club
Yup, the pier is steps away from where the Channel used to be.
Well, the location was peerless before this development
Now it harbors new potential!
oh buoy...keep the puns at bay, please.

Enough with the puns
I've read enough to tide me over for quite a while.
