    Anyone boat on the Ohio River near Huntington? Where do you lauch/moor? I've been in the Huntington area on the Ohio and some KY lakes (Grayson, Cave Run, Lake Cumberland, and Dale Hollow) since I was teething on Dad's anchor line. Now I've got a boat of my own, and you'll usually see us cruising the Greenup pool in our Searay cuddies. Like Father like Son I guess.

    KC, new member here and just read this old post. We now have a boat in the greenup pool. It’s docked at holiday point. I have a couple buddies that keep boats in Huntington.

    We boat on the Kanawha (Charleston Boat Club) but have made several trips to Huntington over the years. We always stayed at Holiday Point Marina. There are some pretty nice destinations on the Ohio, Pomroy, Gallipolis, Marietta and Point Pleasant.

    Look us up. Boat name is Over Weight.
    It will be changed on the boat as soon as weather breaks

    We have 4 grandsons and have to have
    Room for all. It seems as if it has been maintained well.
    On the way home with it the stern thruster stuck on in the lock chamber at Robert c bird. Not being experienced it was a terrifying experience, finally I shut the power off to it. It was all I could do to keep it off lock wall. Haven’t had a problem since. But those 3 or 4 spins was unreal.

    We are on the Ohio but closer to Pittsburgh in Bridgewater, PA. Lots of boats docked on the Beaver River.

    Hope to be back in the group this summer! Certainly will be up to Charleston for Live on the Levee again in the new ride. WV 320, I am sure I will see you up there. Roger, you will have to plan a trip up that way.

    The guy that owns the Fly In Cafe is opening up at the Huntington Marina July 1st. He is calling it Pier One .
    He has done well at the small airport so I think he will breath life into the Marina.

    Just seen on the news that they have canceled the concerts on the levy for
    2020. At least we can boat.

    Yes, my wife and I were pretty disappointed, but was able to fit the sea trial in today. All went well and waiting for the report from the surveyor. Fingers crossed that we get closed on this and the river clears up!

    Current plan is to run up the mighty Ohio River Friday unless conditions
    Change.
    Plan on launching the new dinghy Saturday and cooking out at the marina.

    Best of luck! The weather is supposed to be nice and hopefully the river stays good. Probably be a few weeks for me yet.
