New Boat Ramp Woes

While I was down at the new Children's Beach boat ramp this morning, two officials from the DPW arrived and took measurements. I guess the Town is receiving a lot of complaints from boaters that the ramp is not working. One of the officials told me that the pitch of the ramp is 10% from his calculations. I am not sure what is going to be done if anything in the future to correct this problem at the ramp. here's another shot of them taking measurements-

Captain Blair brought his boat, Shearwater back from the yard at Providence, RI yesterday. He told me he had a wild ride. He said there were 12' seas off Block Island.

Anyone know what these two brand new machines are? I spotted them at the parking lot at Hoicks Hollow late today. I'm thinking they have something to do with the 'Sconset beach preservation project.

Here's the logo on the side of the machines-
