The Harbormasterâ€™s office and pier is located at the lower end of Town Landing Road. The current facility was constructed in 1999/2000 when it was discovered during the replacement of the old asphalt boat launch ramp with a new concrete one, that the pier had deteriorated to the point of being unsafe. In 1999 the Town Council approved the replacement of the pier at an estimated cost of $365,000. In early 2000 construction began on the new pier that extends into deeper water and provides additional area for docking of boats, as well as other amenities, such as improved lighting, pump-out, public water and handicapped access to the pier itself and the office. When the pier was completed in late May of 2000 it was on schedule and under budget!
The new pier provides access to larger pleasure boats and the many lobster boats that could not dock during periods of low tide. Other features such as improved lighting and seating provide an area for citizens to visit and to view the anchorage.
