Winthrop waterway fees


Recommended Posts

I'm usually just a lurker on this board

but I thought this group would find this of concern.

Recently a member of another board that I follow

( over at the "reel-time" kayak forum ) was given a ticket because

he did not have a Winthrop sticker for his kayak.

he has been told that the fee is $100 for use of the

waterways in Winthrop. not a ramp fee or beach fee

but a waterways fee.

has anyone here run into this one before ?

no I don't think this is a hoax based on the story behind it. although it is starting to sound like the harbormaster overstepped his authority purely out of frustration at being called to check on a report of a kayak in trouble when he would rather be off the water.

as far as I know they are still threatening a $50 ticket unless he buys the $100 town sticker.
