CLEARWATER - Water, water everywhere, and not a place to dock; that's a refrain echoed by many Clearwater boaters faced not only with a declining number of permanent boat storage facilities, but also dearth of destinations on the water.
Restauranteur Frank Chevas, owner of the popular Island Way Grill on Island Estates, has made a contribution to solving the latter issue, having recently constructed boat docks at his restaurant for public use, and giving ownership to the City of Clearwater.
There are nine slips in all, some able to accommodate boats of up to 50 feet in length. Water depth at mean low tide is 5 to 9 feet at 8 of the slips, with the eastern most slip having an average depth of 4 feet according to Clearwater Harbormaster Bill Morris.
A sidewalk connecting the slips to public rights of way on Island Way will be constructed by Wednesday, April 20, allowing the slips to be used both by the general public and customers of the Island Way Grill. Bring your own dock lines and enjoy Clearwater's newest boating destination.
