Sandusky Ramps, Marinas local info please

Post by Roger M. Brook » Wed, 03 Jul 2002 06:47:53


I would appreciate any local information on ramps and Marinas, to help plan
a trip to Sandusky bay the 3rd week in July, my home port is Buffalo, NY.

We like to launch, store the trailer and then find a nearby marina to use as
a home base for the week.

I need to launch a '96 270 sea ray on a triple axle trailer so I need a
recommendation on a 1st class ramp with at least 4' of depth while the
trailer is still on the ramp.

We would like to visit the islands for a day or two and cedar point (but
that could be by car), and other places you could suggest.

I have looked at a few of the chamber links, but nothing replaces local
knowledge. Best Regards, Roger

Hi Roger

I keep my boat in Sandusky all summer.  I have just the place for you.
 The
launch ramps in Sandusky are great.  The city ramps are located at the
end of
Water St. and there is a $5.00 fee to use them  ( well worth it) and
you can store your trailer there as well.  Dock of the Bay is a
excellent place to stay for the week, they have floating rental docks
that should accomodate u very well
The marina is gated and the facilities are top notch with Cedar Point
being a
short 5 minute boat ride across the bay, you can actually see cedar
point from
the marina.  I recommend you give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

I can second both the ramps there (we've launched there several times) and
'Dock of the Bay' (visited some friends who had a slip there).  Dock of the
Bay is just about right across the street from a West Marine in case of
equipment emergency.  We've also launched from the state park ramps on
Catawba Island, but I don't know about depth or long-term storage--the
Sandusky ramps seem like a better bet.

Dear Randy,
Thank you very much for your reply. The advice sounds great.
You say the ramps are deep enough and I can store the trailer at the city
ramp. I am surprised they can accomodate trailers for a week, but that would
be great.
I will check out Dock of the Bay.
Are there other must do or see items you can suggest other than Cedar Point,
which we will definately do?
Regards, Roger
