Diane Johnson of Burlington hopes that she and her husband can enjoy a few more trips out on the boat before putting it away for the winter.
“We didn’t get into the water until the Fourth of July and we’ve been in ever since,” Johnson said. “But we’re hoping for a few more good weekends.”
To highlight that effort to extend the season, Brackemeyer and the Clinton Marina will host an end-of-the-season boater bash Sept. 14.
A live band will entertain guests and food will be offered to marina slip holders and members of the public who would like to attend the event.
Brackemeyer said it will be an opportunity for the marina to say thank you to the slip renters and all the transient boaters who made the best out of this year.
The only concern she and boaters have for the end of the season is the river dropping below a safe travel level.
“Low water has people a little concerned and (the Corps) already had to dredge,” Brackemeyer said. “But we’ll see what happens.”
