southpaw, and anyone else that wants a boat launch on Onondaga Lake, flood the DEC (they have a special Dept. that installs and maintains all boat launches) with letters/emails/Fax's etc. requesting the launch. Write your local Representatives make it a big Political/Media issue. We had a small local fishing club that proposed brush piles to improve a local lake, the DEC rejected our offer to gather/install the brush piles. One year later the same DEC Fisheries Bio. announced in the local newspaper "they" had come up with a "wonderful new idea" to improve the lake........DEC installed "Brush Piles"!!!!! We then Proposed boat launch docks that we would build and install.....again the idea was rejected by the DEC........one year later guess what.....brand new docks, with the DEC Bio's Picture on the front page of the paper, Headline's "DEC Introduces Boat Launch Improvments"............Oh well, sometimes you have to "plant the seeds"
