Barrier Free Boating offers an opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy fishing, cruising, and sightseeing from a boat. The pontoon boat is specifically designed to accommodate up to three wheelchairs or a maximum of three large powered chairs. It is a 22 foot South Bay with 25" pontoons, the largest available, to provide as much stability as possible. The motor is a 25 hp Yamaha with a projected speed of 6 to 8 miles per hour.
Barrier Free Boating has the full support of the Village of Otter Lake and the Village Park Committee. The Village has generously donated dock space for the pontoon. A special wheelchair accessible dock is installed with a docking platform for the pontoon boat.
Otter Lake Village Park has a campground, boat launch, beach, picnic area and a pavilion. Handicap accessibility includes sidewalks, bathrooms, and specialized tables and grills. http://barrierfreeboating.org
