Harbor all ramped up

It took two cranes, two days, a caravan of trucks and a platoon of workers, but last Thursday and Friday the new Ramp 3 went in at the Homer Harbor. Built by Bay Weld of Homer, a Homer Boat Yard truck and trailer hauled the 105-foot, 18,000-pound ramp to the harbor from Bay Weld’s shop on East End Road. The ramp is the harbor’s first ramp with a covered roof and built to Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Unlike other ramps with a “cheese grater” deck, the ramp has a rubber floor.
