Seems like the winter brings with it lack of motivation as well as the distraction of all the holidays and special occasions. Adventure With 4Winds
Check out the fun little video based on our planned adventure.
Island Harbor Marina is located at mile 71.1 on the Arkansas River, just 1/4 mile inside lake
Langhoffer, of the Pine Bluff Harbor. The only marina between Little Rock, AR and Greenville, MS. So why are we making this post about this marina?
Island Harbor is the home to several liveaboard residents, a potentially important stopping point for transients going either way on the Arkansas river.
The website for Island Harbor Marina is here, (Note: the Island Harbor Marina website is no longer up) it has not been updated in years but is still active, it shows the potential that the marina has, as it was a booming stop on the Arkansas river at one time.
Currently the marina is in disrepair, no fuel, no groceries, no restaurant (which is there but not open), just to say it needs help. The owner of the marina had decided to sell it, and a gentleman took on the challenge. Looks like the future of Island Harbor Marina is looking up. The marina has just acquired a new work boat compliments of a State Grant. This boat provides the ability to remotely pumping out the sewage from our liveaboard boats, as well as transients as they come through.
The Marina has started putting down sheets of plywood to assist in covering up large areas of rotten wood in the deck of the dock. Going to be very slick when it gets wet, but just got to be careful I guess.
Small improvements, all help.
Island Harbor Marina is under new management and it looks like it will never be back to the way it once was. The marina lost the boat ramp to the county, and paying for launching your boat is no more, it is now free. Most of the big cruisers have pulled out and seems the marina is steady-going down hill…
I encourage any and all replies that might benefit the saving of Island Harbor Marina, and its residents.
