    Looks good..
    Heard theres "plans" for a marina to be dredged out on the left and a campsite where the "secure" parking is.

    So much nicer than what was previously there. Hard to tell but are there bumpers along side of the new docks?

    Does not look like it.
    Huge upgrade, should make launch and retrieval speed up!

    Will be alot safer also. Last year I saw one person fall through the "dock" on the left side once when a rotten plank snapped. looked painful...

    Pls give us a report when u do. A marina would be great but I hope they keep some secure parking.

    Did the launch itself get fixed and dredged? Docks look great. 1 for launch and one for retrieve

    What a fantastic upgrade! Should make launching and hauling much easier and less stressful............

    thanks for the info SF-we have a cabin booked in Esperanza so am thinking of driving to Tahsis instead of our usual launch at Gold R . my 26' is about 10,000 lb incl trailer- any thoughts on the road to Tahsis this summer?

    Haven't been this year but they improve it every year! I 'm not sure driving a boat that heavy is your best option-we were talking hypothetically if the FN raised rates-haven't heard what they are charging yet. Driving is an option-it's doable but I still think that Gold river is the best bet as long as things stay the way they were and the don't start jacking parking and launch prices.
