Passing along a message posted on the NYC Kayaker moderated email list. Hoping that local waterfront and boating enthusiasts will help keep an eye out for the lost dock. One of the local tugboat owners did mention on a related Facebook post that a dock this size is very hard to tow and suggested that it may have just been cut loose - whether it's that or somebody actually stealing it for their own use, this is a really lousy thing to do. Here's the note that accompanied the photo:
The board of Manhattan Community Boathouse requests help in recovering their modular dock. It was at Pier 96 on the Hudson River and was removed sometime in the past two weeks. The dock is used at the free kayak programs run at this location by Manhattan Community Boathouse (and previously by DTBH). The board of MCBH has filed a police report and asks the waterfront community to help find the dock, and the culprit(s) that took it.
If anyone has information, please contact the boathouse at
manhattancommunityboathouse"at"gmail.com (replace "at" with @ as usual).
Hope they get their dock back soon!
