No Launch Piers at South Shore for 2020 Season

Launch piers will not be installed at South Shore due to the high water in Lake Michigan and the degraded seawall in the South Shore basin, a result of the January storm. Together, these events leave no protection to prevent the launch piers from breaking loose in a storm. Launching at South Shore without piers in place is at the boat owner's own risk. Instead, use launch sites with piers at McKinley, Riverfront and Bender.
