Dock Relo Project.

Waterfront reinvented.

As noted in a previous post, the water level left both ends of the first section of the dock high and dry. This was so disheartening, I was forced to make an executive Shag Security Council decision and move the dock to a more boat friendly location.

For comparison to prior year water level pics

In other news - Hodr's bench has reached the end of its useful life, with split wood, dangerous exposed spikes, and rotting stumps.

The job begins. Made somewhat tougher by HDW's decision to leave one section installed over the winter.

Break time. In the waders. In the rain.


Back to work.

Floating the third section out.

To give us the best odds of having a dock that is actually usable for boats over the season, we started the dock a short swim from the shore, and need a temporary solution to bridge the gap.

Hodr's gift is repurposed to solve the problem.

Looks like you did a great job with the dock. I can't believe how low the water is.
