Cape boat ramp damaged Sunday

Monday, September 20, 2004

Red Star River Access was damaged late Sunday morning and the boat docks were not expected to be open until later today.

The damage was discovered at about 12:30 p.m. by fishermen who had gone out earlier in the morning, said Tom Holshouser, member of the Hooker Boat Club, which maintains the dock. Witnesses said a pleasure boat appeared out of control and could have rammed into the bank, although no one reported witnessing the accident.

Repairs will include the use of a tractor to pull two sections of submerged walkway and the use welding to realign the steelwork.
