boat launch

boat launch!

by grace on May 11, 2020

here’s one final thing to share, our boat launch on April 24th.

first, here’s the fancy new cover that kevin installed. Because the top pole of the roof snapped in two when we pulled the boat under our big pine tree out front, we had to get a whole new roof. The replacement piece, plus an absurd amount of shipping costs, would have cost almost as much as the fancy new cover.

it took kevin about a week to install the new one because there was all kinds of wiring and many issues with doing it. but it’s totally cool, automatically lifting and lowering with a switch that kevin mounted on the console, plus there’s an additional little remote to raise and lower it.

here’s the video of how it works.

Shortly after that we drove the boat over to the boat launch.

kevin started backing into the water and i shot this video, but notice the object right in the middle of the water.

Uh oh! Luckily i saw this giant rock in the water…

Kevin pulled the truck forward and then managed to back up again really close to the dock and avoiding the giant rock. He thinks somebody must have put the giant rock in the water but how would they have lifted it? was somebody attempting sabotage? hopefully not, and hopefully it is gone now.

Mom and i were happy to be out on the lake.

Yay!

When we got back to the dock, Kevin joined us for a nice ride on the lake. a good time was had by all!

ok then,

g.h.
