Marina Continued from page 50 a 60 ton model. "It's likely that some of the larger vessels at Ocean City would come to Lewes to be pulled because the lift I'm proposing would pull them where- as the one in Ocean City cannot." Walsh said if approved, the travel lift will be installed just to the west of the existing gas dock and fish cleaning stand. Waish's plans for refurbishing his marina also include construc- tion of a boat ramp; reconfigura- tion of the existing boat slips with a reduction in their total from 42 to 34; refurbishment of existing rip rap; addition of stormwater management and sewage pump- out facilities; and replacement of existing underground fuel tanks with above-ground tanks. Walsh said he plans to remove a number of small slips at the west end of his waterfront to accommo- Tattoo Continued from page 50 too - you have to be 18 years of age or older and be able to prove it with a photo ID, a stencil is made and the customer takes a seat in a chair while Hurley begins her work. A small tattoo can take 20 minutes to a half hour. The longest Hurley recommends any- one sitting is three hours. She'll even do customized tattoos, not- ing that people have brought in al- bum covers and other memorabil- ia that they would like transferred to their skin. "They sting a little bit," says Hurley, who has met all state health regulations and uses an au- toclave to sterilize her equipment. She also is a member of good standing of the National Tattoo Association for nine years and a member of the Alliance of Profes- sional Tattooists - both trade orga- nizations that keep her abreast of the latest developments in the in- dustry. Hurley, who bears even more tattoos today then in the accompa- nying picture taken in 1986, says tattoos should be a personal state- ment. "It's amazing the thought that some people give a tattoo." And what kind of reaction does she get to her tattooed body? "Most of the time I get really positive reactions," she laughed, recalling that when she goes shop- ping with girlfriends that they like to follow her in malls to observe the different reactions. "Little old ladies are a riot," she said. "I was in a clothing store once and this older lady looked over at me and said, 'I always wanted to have one of those.' And, believe it or not, I have done quite a few tattoos for senior citi- zens." Hurley's shop is open from noon to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and is closed Sunday. She welcomes both walk-ins and appointments. For more informa- tion, give her a call at 644-1864. date new slips for large vessels. He said he wants to have nine or ten 50 to 65 foot long slips large enough to accommodate vessels the size of the Jolly Rover and the Lewestown Princess. "I think there's a growing de- mand in this area for large vessels designed to take people out on the water for recreation." Under the proposal, Walsh would dig up current underground fuel tanks and relocate them to an above ground location. The gas pumps on the dock would be moved to shore which Walsh said would be more environmentally sound. He said the boat ramp he would like to install would go at the marsh (west) end of his property. Most of the planned work would involve a 300 foot stretch of canal bank rip-rapped with large chunks of concrete running between the gas dock and the open marsh to the west. He said his proposal would in- volve disturbing a 40 x 50 x 60 foot piece of marsh. "I'd like to square off my parking lot which would involve using a small piece of the marsh," said Walsh. "I may have to come up with some sort of mitigation project to make up for that loss but that's not firm yet." He said the ramp, which is the least of his priorities, would even- tually be available on a fee basis. Walsh feels the large parking area surrounding his marina is a big plus for his location. "People who have problems parking else- where will find room here," he said. The parking areas have been ex- panded in the past year. Walsh CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 26 - September 1, 1994 - 51 has added many truckloads of clam shells to build a 120 x 200 foot lot on the beach side of An- gler's Road and he also extended his parking area at the west end of his property by 180 feet. "I have 39 acres here total," said Walsh. "A lot of it's under the canal and a lot of it is marsh that I can't use. Most of what I am using was filled ground created years ago by the Corps of Engineers when they dug the canal." Lewes Mayor George H.P. Smith said Tuesday that he doesn't know what position, if any, the town will take on Walsh's proposal. He said he has asked Tempe Steen, legal counsel for Lewes, to look at the proposal and determine what impact Walsh's plans will have. "We want to know what he (Walsh) owns and doesn't own. What's his to do with and what's not his to do with. She will have to look into Jack's (former Lewes counsel Jack Messick, now de- ceased) files to see what's in there referring to the property." Bill Moyer, DNREC section manager for the wetlands and sub- aqueous lands section, said no let- ters either for or against have been received regarding Walsh's re- quest. No hearing will be held unless a letter requesting such is sent to DNREC by Aug. 30. The same holds true with the Corps of Engineers process. The deadline for commenting on the Corps process is early in Septem- ber. iiii=, "=@  ..... = =° .... = °I ..... i i[i--L' = ..- .'imv .. ,. ,=.. i =' Water Served With Every Meal Anglers Restaurant, a Lewes waterfront landmark, offers the finest selection of fresh seafood, steaks and sumptuous specials at the beach.
