PAGE 10 SANDUSKY REGISTER SAT., AUG. 19, 1967 $300,000 Just For Repairs By JACK SAWYER Register Staff Writer • Whoever operates Battery Park Marina next year is going to hiave a first rate repair job on their hands. The biggest bile of the re- budget will be fixing up the outer wall — to the tune of about $300,000. A local contractor estimated the repair work itself at a quarter of a million, with another $50,000 for taking out old docks and cleaning up the area. Th? old wall, a WPA nroiect some 40 years ago. is in a state of advanced deterioration, with the lake tearing at it like a sand castle. The timbers holding in the tons of stone ballast are full of dry rot and crumbling beneath the waves. The stone ballast sinks into the lake, almost as fast as it's pu' in. Dallas dumped in this spring has gone down about three feet already. Engineers say the wall should be fortified on both sides with sheet steel — the cost, about $100,000 per side. Then for another $50,000, the wall should be capped with concrete. Then the old' unusable, rotted docks protruding like festered thumbs from the outer wall, should be removed and replaced with usable facilities — at least another $50,000 worth of labor and materials. For several years, the Phil- 1 i p s Petroleum Company, based in Bartlesville, Okla., has operated Battery Park, on a 25-year lease from Sandus- The lease expires in 1985, CALL PFANNERS For Quality Dry Cleoiiing! * Exclusive Adjust-A -Dmpe Service ® Rug Shampooing * Pick up and Delivery Service NO PARKING PROBLEMS Ph. 626-1821 414 E. Washington St. but both the city and the oil company are investigating possibilities of terminating the agreement. Final word is expected to come from oil company moguls within a week, according to City Manager Paul A. Flynn. Sandusky City Commissioners have voiced unanimous discontent with the way Phillips has operated the local marina-restaurant combination. The marina and park, they say, have been allowed to rest in disrepair and the restaurant is irregularly open. The restaurant —Sui'fside 66 — has been closed all sum- Real Estate Transfers Catherine King and Isaac Samuel and Viola M. Hendrix pt lot 6 A St. Rovden L. and Phyllis A.

Not only the oil company, but the city, is losing money on the deal. The city makes money from the lease on a percentage basis. With the restaurant closed, the facility's profits are low and the city's income subsequently minimal. Should Phillips Oil Company decide to pull out of the Sandusky park business, all permanent facilities in the area would revert to the city. Phillips officials estimated the company has poured nearly $300,000 into Battery Park in new structures and repairing old ones. Phillips has already decreed that it would not sink another quarter of a million dollars in the area. If the oil comoany pulls out. the city will be falced with getting someone to run it. Commissioners have interviewed some persons who are interested in operating the restaurant, but have heard nothing from anyone wanting the marina ion a lease-percentage basis. Whoever takes it. however, will have to start with a pretty sizeable capital investment. Experts say the old outer wall won't hold for long and may even crumble this winter. ROTTING TIMBERS.

Baumler of 1227 Second St., were crewmembers aboard the antisubmarine warfare support aircraft carrier USS Intrepid when the ship went to the aid of the carrier USS Forrestal. Th e Forrestal, operating "on station" in the Gulf of Tonkin, was seriously damaged when a fuel tank on one of its aircraft, preparing to take off, dropped from the plane, spewing burning gasoline along the entire flight and hangar decks. The fire resulted in many secondary explosions from burning bombs and missiles. Upon arriving at the scene of' the disaster, helicopters from the Intrepid began transporting men and supplies to the Forrestal to aid the itick- en ship and her crew in combating the fire. The Intrepid had just returned from a period of rest and recreation, her first since arriving in Southeast Asia last June. The Intrepid is homeported at Norfolk, Va. FREDERICK A. G.
