\Repairs are needed for the old Dragnet dock, which is located on the south side of Kasilof River. It was damaged by ice last winter and must be fixed before ice gets a chance at it again. Plans to do just that are in the works. The dock and 30 acres near by are owned by the Cherrier family, and the property is for sale. Jay Cherrier is a primary owner, doing business as Port of Kenai, Llc. Jim Johnson (830-4820) is his manager. Ocean Beauty Seafoods inquired about leasing it for the 2007 salmon season but backed off when the damage was discovered. This is the second time in about ten years that ice has damaged this dock.
