    I believe the use of the ß is good for the environment, as it needs less energy to transmit, when compared to the kinda double it stands for.

    You are correct, except that is actually a wooden pier next to the ramp.
    The pier is new since I have been there.
    The ramp looks like it has been rebuilt.

    In general jetty and pier might be both correct names for the wooden structure shown next to the boat ramp, depending on locally customary names ?

    Jetty: (1) A landing stage or small pier at which boats can dock or be moored.
    example: ‘ Ben jumped ashore and tied the rowboat up to the small wooden jetty.

    Pier: (1.1) A structure projecting from the shore into a river, lake, or the sea, used as a landing stage for boats.
    example: ‘ The grounds include a boat shed and pier with river and lake frontages, as well as lawn areas and a number of mature shrubs.
