Sorting Gap opens for the season

  One of the sure signs that summer is coming, the Sorting Gap Marina opened its doors for the season today at 9 a.m.
“Everybody’s welcome to come on down. We’re all ready to go,” said manager Kim Badiuk, who works with two full-time students as well as several part-time staff.
“Hopefully, we have a great summer,” she added.
Badiuk noted last summer wasn’t as busy as the previous one due to the lack of hot weather—and she’s keeping her fingers crossed that won’t be the case again.
From now until June 1, the Sorting Gap Marina will be open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. and Friday and Sunday from 9 a.m.-10 p.m.
Then from June 1 until the first week of September, the hours will be 9 a.m.-10 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m.-10 p.m. on Friday through Sunday.
As in previous years, the Sorting Gap will be the place for boaters to pay for launch fees, docking fees, and gas, as well as for the general public to get a treat while they’re strolling along the waterfront.
The daily launch fee is $6 for residents and $7 for non-residents, with the seasonal launch fee being $45 for residents and $55 for non-residents.
Commercial launch fees are $150 for residents and $165 for non-residents.
Dock slips also can be rented by the day, week, month, and season. For residents, the cost is $8/day, $40/week, $150/month, $302/season (riverfront slip) and $430/season (Sorting Gap).
For non-residents, the price is $9.60, $47, $175, $350, and $500, respectively (these costs include taxes).
Badiuk noted hard ice cream, candy, popsicles, pop, chips, and other snacks are for sale at the Sorting Gap Marina, as well as coffee and “bag tags.”
