Marina moved

Yesterday afternoon, after dropping my daughter and her friend off at Pullman Square, I wandered over to Harris Riverfront Park to look around. I saw this and thought a dredge was about to clean mud from the park dock area.  I looked again and realized it was a marina.

The first thought in my head was that these slips came from the one up at Guyandotte that sank a while back. The boat pushing them was a local boat -- not made for a lot of long-distance trips. This morning on the 6 a.m. news, WSAZ-TV reported that it was indeed from Guyandotte, and that this dock will be added to the one already at the upper end of HRP.

Huh, that's pretty neat. Glad you got a picture of it. I'd never thought about marinas being moved before.

Are there more people keeping their boats at HRP now?
