Default Lillian Ramp

Launched out of Lillian to take my nephew and niece "fishing" (2 pilchards, 1 hardtail) Recovering was almost a disaster. Sand, sand, and sand about 2 feet before the water line and about 18 inches deep in the water. Does anyone maintain the ramp? Dont get me wrong its a beautiful ramp. Another boat about 26' went to launch and made it halfway down and left to find what I would guess is a better ramp. Pic of my trailer after pulling out the boat. Sand grinding in my brakes didnt sound good.

This article mentions the sand. They can dredge once a year, but in spite of the $2.1 cost its in a bad place.

That ramp sucks with no sand! They did not make it at the right angle! Not steep enough!

I have never had to push my boat off the trailer before when my rear wheels were in the water. I wont be back to that ramp.

I was wondering how that ramp was. I'll stick with lagoon.

The north side of the ramp is much less sandy, I always use that side. Definitely not the place to launch a really big boat. It also can get really rough there with a strong south to southeast wind, 1 footers plus is a lot at a boat ramp.

I heard from the most reliable news source in Pensacola (my wife's hairdresser) that they are building a new ramp and parking lot off Barrancas. Anybody else hear anything about it?

That ramp is only a few miles from my house but it costs me $100 for an Alabama fresh and salt water license to be able to launch from there; I live on the Florida side. I stick to the Herron Bayou launch but that’s not much better. The soft dirt makes recovery of a boat of any size difficult and I only have an 18’ bass boat. Haven’t launched since they’ve redone the launch from the flooding but I saw one boat and vehicle having to be towed out and huge ruts left. Wish they would pave it.

Yes it is right beside Harbor View marine..... But that's a far piece from Perido bay.

Thats my thoughts. Which one did the OP use?

I used the southern ramp to launch my first time and waited and waited to use the better one to retrieve. No issues.

We have hopes of going out of there this weekend but I may stop by Friday on my way home from work and check it out just to make sure they're both not clogged up with gunk.
