Building A Boat Ramp

Ever Wonder What Goes Into Building a Boat Ramp Check Out Millsboro Pond

The Mumford & Miller Concrete General Contractor crews are hard at work on the Millsboro pond boat ramp. When I head to town for errands I like to drop by and check the progress. I never knew how much rebar goes into a boat ramp, but I do now. Can’t wait until this is finished, I am dying to get the kayak in Millsboro pond and hammer pickerel.

The huge pump pulls water out of the crew’s way to work inside the temporary sheeting holding back the pond.. The water is pumped into a large cistern to separate the sediment. Then the water drains back into the pond after passing through a large slurry filter bag.

“We are going to pour this soon with quick setting cement. The center will be nine inches thick and the sides almost two feet.” These are the guys that built the Phillips Landing boat ramp recently. The timeline should be about mid October for the complete project. It will be a much better boat ramp with more parking, and bathrooms. Anglers will be able to fish the bulkhead, like a pier, in the parking lot.

Fish On!
