The city just rebuilt the dock at the harbor on Bayou Castine on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Nice dock within walking distance of a few good restaurants on the lakefront. 30 ampere power and water but no pump out.

They had a problem with "Yats" coming in and trashing the lakefront with beer filled picnics and leaving the mess. .. The rule is about not eating on the pier or the parkland on the lakefront. It is OK to entertain and eat on the boat.. A "Yat" is typically a person from New Orleans central city; typically greet each other with "Hey, Where yat?" They have a pretty hard Bronx accent that is characteristic of New Orleans..

Oh. When I read the rules I noticed the pets must stay on a leash and that food was not permitted.
My thoughts were to reduce the opportunity to feed or bait the gators and crocks.

We do see 'gators back up the bayou about a mile, at our slip. The east side of the bayou is a state park, so kinda wetland swamp.

So "yats" are not the same as who-dats? My peeps are from New Iberia and we say who-dat.:biggrin:

Just spent a few nights there last week. They did a great job on refinishing the bulkheads. As far as gators there was a 6 footer swimming around the boat in the late evening looking for dinner.

Also good to see that they placed boards between the pilings. Don't have to rig fender boards to keep the topsides from rubbing on piling. Can simply use fenders now. And to think that I made fender boards just for that location; more stuff to occupy my out of control garage!:p

Always good to meet fellow forum guys. Jmce1587 came by yesterday to say hello. We had a fine chat; he’d brought a few adult beverages . Thanks, Jerry.
