Sportfishing association fixes village boat ramp dock.

PENTWATER — In a cooperative effort, Pentwater Sportfishing Association proposed a project to help upgrade the village boat ramp dock with needed repairs for boat launching safety for the 2020 season.

Pentwater Village agreed to purchase the materials, and the Pentwater Sportfishing Association provided the labor to repair, install, and bring the dock up to a much safer boat launch area.

The PSA team — Bruce Koorndyk, Darryl Highway, Rob Bannink, Steve Sauser, Janet Swanson, and Dean Jessup — provided over 50 hours of labor to remove all the old material, inspect and upgrade boards, install new 4×4 tie-up post, and install new boat bumper material around the entire dock. This new repair will give boaters a safer launch dock and added protection for boats.

“PSA enjoys a great relationship with the Village of Pentwater management and works hard to provide suggested needs for a safer boating community in Pentwater,” states a PSA press release.

Other recent projects of PSA include: 1) purchase and the installation annually of channel marker lights for safe night navigation 2) purchase and help install flashing marker lights on three no wake buoys in Pentwater Lake to provide better navigation and outline the no wake area in Pentwater Lake, and 3) donate added funding to Pentwater Village for the marina fish cleaning station operation and maintenance.
