Commercial Vessels

The pier has been closed for some time and even though its now open to foot passengers the deck is not certified to take vehicles so there is no commercial traffic.

Fishing Vessels

Fishing vessels rarely use the pier at the moment but will use it when the deck is rated for vehicle traffic.
