For the boaters, the main issue is that the tie up is in the mouth of the creek. As has happened before, when it blows out, boats get ripped off the bolts and ropes and sent downstream. Since the group was on shore when it happend, they were boatless.
Damn. When I was there last week, there were 24 boats in the mouth. 6 OARS boats, 6 AZRA boats, 8 OU boats, 3 boat private and a Hatch motor rig. That would've been chaos.
