Exactly as above, the harbour didnt silt as much before the marina because the water came in, then went out... it didnt hang around long enough for the silt to fall to the bed, as long as the waters being held its gonna silt up, peeps need to accept it for what it is, there is never gonna be the money to get it like it was when it opened, simply will never happen!! Any boat can sit in that mud without problems, just shut your cocks. Simple as that.. if you like goin there just go.. lifes too short.
