I'm a boater and spend a fair amount of time out on the Napa River and waters beyond. When I moved to Napa many years ago, one of the great features was the downtown dock. Cruising up the river, tying up then going to dinner with friends was always a blast. At the time the ramp to the dock came down from a small parking lot in a dirt field between third street and the Hatt Market. My how it has changed!
For six years now we have not had our dock and I have missed it tremendously. In just a few days now the new city dock will re-open. Of course there will be all kinds of new rules, but it will be great to be able to go to downtown Napa by water again. My thanks to the City and whomever else played a hand in getting our dock back!
