Kayak Storage at Channel Islands Harbor
Channel Islands Landing has done a considerable renovation over the last three years. We have new docks, are a couple of months away from adding another building with office, restrooms with showers, and storage lockers. I am trying to get a large container that we can use for Kayak/Paddleboard storage that has 24/7 access to you with full security cameras, electricity for lights and a self-locking door. We will be installing storage racks on both sides that will allow each Kayak owner to lock their Kayak into place. Would any of your members be interested in this type of a facility at Channel Islands Harbor. We are just before Kiddie Beach at the abandoned launch ramp. If there is interest, please pass this information along and ask that they give me a call or email so that I can start the planning for how much interest there is. We would charge $40 to $50 per month and have a refundable deposit on an electronic access FOB. Thanks for your time and please feel free to call or email with any questions. Right now I am in the planning phase. Ideas are welcome. Paul

Nearly every Sunday morning at 9am a group of CKF'ers launch from Kiddie Beach at Channel Islands Harbor. There is usually no announcement made because everyone knows to just show up. The group meets about 8:20am for a 9am launch. Feel free to join us if you have your own boat and gear.
