The Spesutie Island Boat Ramp at #TeamAPG has been impacted by buildup of sediment, limiting the ability to launch boats at low tide.

Boaters should be aware that the ramp is usable for ingress and egress of larger boats at high tide as the sediment impacts the ability to get trailers deep enough into the water to float the boats off the trailers.
