Consider this water frontage:
Like any business opportunity, capital improvments and equipment purchases would be required and logistics addressed. On the East side of the island, a protected cove offers an area that could be dedicated as a temporary holding area for boats. Of course, floating piers could also be utilized to house jet skis, kayaks, and canoes for rental to the public.
The ridge noted within the image is a dike that contains dredge spoil per a perpetual dumping agreement with the Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal District.
