The Quinby Harbor enhancements were completed in March of 2010. The County of Accomack received $294,375 from the VSRFDF. The County contributed $98,125 to the project. The project included the replacement of the double-wide concrete boat ramp, the replacement of the bulkhead around the ramp, launch and recovery floating docks and a finger pier, a handicapped accessible aluminum access ramp, select dredging, and improved trailer parking areas.
The Town of Quinby does charge a fee to use the ramp. However, if you have your own valid Virginia saltwater fishing license, you are eligible for a discount. You must show your license, when you enter to receive the discount. Please remember that family and friends, who intent to fish from a saltwater licensed vessel and do not have their own Virginia saltwater fishing license, must register with the free Virginia Fisherman Identification Program (FIP).
