Twenty-four thousand pounds of concrete was brought to  Menemsha harbor on Wednesday morning, part of a vast harbor improvement plan that includes a new 40-foot fixed wooden fuel dock and new access ramps for people with handicaps. The yacht dock, also known as the transient dock, will have a fixed wooden pier for the first 60 feet and the floating concrete docks surfaced with wooden planks for the remaining 80 feet.

The project is funded by a $629,000 grant form the Massachusetts Seaport Advisory Council, which was awarded last spring for repairs stemming from the July 2010 Menemsha boathouse fire.
