Tisbury launch ramps promised for Fourth
Reconstruction of the only two public boat launch facilities in Tisbury will be completed before the start of the busy July 4 holiday weekend. That is the optimistic news for Island boaters, from state and local officials.

According to Tisbury town administrator John Bugbee, the PAB refused to pay for the installation of water and electricity. "Water and electricity are important for boaters," he said. "They are an important element of the plan. The town has stepped up and decided to fund it, because we feel that it is important for the voters to have these resources."
On Tuesday, Jay Sonia of Brickstone Construction, a subcontractor on the project, was busy working in an excavator. "The only thing that's slowed us down is the rain," he said. "Everything is going to be great and on time."
