Buoys mark shallow water at East Entrance to Vermilion Harbor; ODNR to dredge entrance in June


Great news all around!  Last Tuesday (4/30) The Vermilion Port Authority placed 4 buoys provided by the ODNR to mark the shallow water at the East Entrance to the Vermilion Harbor.  The City of Vermilion announced last Thursday (5/2) that the ODNR will dredge the entrance in June and the City has applied for a $500,000 grant from the ODNR to dredge the River.

We’ve seen a lot of press recently from our local papers with some excellent information.  On Sunday, Don Parsons Marina hosted members of the Chronicle-Telegram on a tour of the Vermilion River and Harbor Entrance with the “Mystic Belle” to see firsthand the situation.  Check out the article on their website with more photos of the buoys at the Harbor Entrance.

Last week the Morning Journal and the Elyria Chronicle wrote articles regarding the announcement by the City of Vermilion and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources on the dredging of the Vermilion Harbor.

Thanks to our local press for helping to get the word out!  Please pass this along to your fellow boaters so they know where to go when coming to Vermilion.



About Mike

I pinch myself every day... I can't believe I'm back in Vermilion working at the boatyard! I grew up spending afternoons and summer days working at Moes Marine. I moved to Boston after college and met my wonderful wife, Maura, while living life in the big city and working at Boston BoatWorks. We traveled and volunteered abroad for 9 months in 2009 and then found our way back to our families in Ohio. We are now living in downtown Vermilion with our son, Owen, who visits the boatyard daily at coffee break!
