Waddington marine service station has new owners, building


WADDINGTON – Lanning’s Marine Service at Coles Creek Marina and Boat Launch, 13153 Route 37, is nearing the end of construction on its new building, but boaters can still enjoy all its new amenities.

The business is owned by Steven E. Lanning, Waddington, operating at Coles Creek Marina through a contract with the state. The family-operated service station has a new manager, new staff, shop, store, and men’s and women’s restrooms and showers.

The service station’s store will offer camping supplies, snacks, food, ice, bait, and boat accessories.

Outside, there are 66 electrical and non-electrical slips on transit and seasonal docks, which are also scheduled to be renovated this year. Spaces are already filling up for the summer, manager Katelyn R. Lanning said.

“We’re pretty full right now,” Ms. Lanning said. “We have one or two dock slips available for electric boats.”

Seasonal docking contracts are active until Oct. 15.

The station’s services include washing, waxing, cleaning and boat bottom painting. A full-service mechanic is on site five days a week. The marina also offers boat winterization and storage.

The dock and launch, located less than half a mile from Coles Creek Campground, features picnic tables with fire pits and charcoal girls for visitors just looking to sit by the river.

“I don’t think there’s really any marina as secluded as ours east of Hammond and Morristown, except for Malone,” Ms. Lanning said. “It’s gorgeous, private and safe.”

The service station is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday. Lanning’s will be celebrating its grand opening all day July 7.
