    That looks great. Now just add a small dock and 2 or 3 rowboats and you will be all set for business

    Great scene csx!!:cool:
    I really like the detail in the bank, & the water looks super!

    My only suggestion...if it's not too late, since you've already done the water...would be to add a dock...maybe one of those that float on 55gal. drums...? But it also looks great as is!:cool:

    Yes. I think a dock would be just the thing. You could add one or two boat houses as well. People would store there boat at a marina. Mabie a repair shop for outboard motors with a used boat and motor sales area. There could be a boat ramp for car and trailer access as well. Perhaps a baotway, you know, 2 rails up the bank that a boat is dragged up. There would be a gass pump on the dock too. There could be part of the dock for people who live abord there boats, this would be a small community in itself, with odd crafts and sail boats, even a house boat.

    I'm from the west coast and spent many summers around marinas. I hope this gives you some ideas. ;)

    Charlie, I know where he can find a 55 gallon drum............
    CSX, If the marina is on a river, you'd need mostly bass boats, or runabouts, inboard,or outboard. If on a lake, or there's a lake close by, just down the river, you could add some small sailboats.
    You would need a dock, and some slips for the boats, and a gas pump, and a place to buy live bait, and a place to get food, or snacks, and beer............and a place to haul out the boats and scrub off the zebra mussles, and a place to pump out the holding tanks, and a launch ramp.......whoa!, 55 gallons! Tyson, this is all your fault....hic,,,,dfuhefbjcejfzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz:D :D :D

    My local hobby store sells a couple of bikini clad chicks tanning in lounge chairs. They would seem appropriate on the end of a dock or a floating platform.

    What about...

    ...a couple of folks fishing along the banks and in the water?

    There is a place just like this in Oakland, NJ (same colors even) and the NYS&W crossed the Ramapo River a 1/4 mile below. There was the trailer of canoes for rentals. They also sold fishing gear (a "Live Bait" sign).

    What about the old tire swing hanging off a tree over the water and the ducks/geese or deer?

    One thing seems a "must" is the boat ramp for getting the boats in and out of the water and the dock (especially the one with the bikini babes!!!:eek::D:eek::D:p).

    Mark :cool:
