OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - After eight years of hard work, Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran says the city has its first kayak launch.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2d6o7wD) the new launch at the county’s Ocean Springs Harbor is a double, which means it can launch a kayak on either side of the dock.

It has 80 feet of floating dock, where motor boats can pull up, tie off and be unloaded. At the end are the launches - beds that hold the kayaks, with rollers for sliding them into the water.

The launch closest to the county’s community pier is handicapped accessible.

Moran says the launch has been a longtime coming, but it will accommodate multi-users: kayaks, paddleboards and easy loading and unloading for boaters.
