This problem is old news, It won't be fixed until it's too late and a human life is lost, it is a daily occurance that launching jet skis or boats becomes a hazard, the ramp design lacks the necessary engineering, slimmy wood planks where metal grids would be more sufficient, a dropoff grade that requires four wheel drive to launch, where another section of ramp would fix the steep incline and make it more safe for people to launch their watercrafts. I drove by there today (AUG. 16, 2010), not even a warning sign in place, and the same problem exists. I guess it will become old news again until it's too late. I would hope that the people of that subdivision that pay extra taxes and launch permit fees for the installation and use of the ramp would care enough to see that this hazard is taken care of immediately.
