Boston Harbor Now continues to be a proponent of Boston Harbor Islands’ moorings and marinas and recognizes their benefit to the islands’ accessibility and enjoyment. We will continue to advocate for their availability to the recreational boating community and provides updates as they become available:
DCR has submitted a permit application and mooring plan for 161 new moorings to be placed between Spectacle, Peddocks, Georges and Gallops Islands. A decision is pending with the Army Corps of Engineers. DCR hopes to have the plan and moorings in place for the 2018 boating season. The proposed plan also envisions a launch service and limited shore side access for dinghy’s.
The public is encouraged to write a letters of support for this application to the USACE at:
