Storm Damage

By Uncle Hans

One fine day last fall, a nasty windstorm came up suddenly out of the east and caused a fair amount of damage here.  Knocked down several trees, and blew the steel roof off the boatlift. It was a major pain-in-the-ass to fish it out of the water and dismantle it and take it to the scrap metal place.  Then it needed to be rebuilt.  I straightened and rebuilt the frame last fall.  But I had to wait until the ice formed to place the sheeting so I had a place to put the ladder...................



.....then, one very warm spring day, I got out the ladder and put the sheeting up.  I used plastic sheeting instead of steel, but I don't like how it turned out.  It looks cheap, but it keeps the rain and sun off the boat, I guess......


tire8 the lake toys are all ready for summer visitors.....
