The boat has officially gone to winter storage, and I’m writing this post from the hot tub which means it’s officially starting to get cold. On the bright side, it’s only seven months until boating season starts again, and in the meantime I’ve got Badger football, basketball, Brewers playoff baseball, Bucks basketball, and Arsenal, plus … Continue reading Winter Storage
As fall rolls in, the boat lift, dock, and boat have all been taken out of the water. Lake Wisconsin itself is being prepared for winter, as the bouys have been removed (which spells the end of large boats safely boating on the lake and river). I am prepping the pontoon for winter storage; it … Continue reading RIP Boat Season
The rain and flooding throughout Wisconsin has continued, and this weekend the Wisconsin River will rise even higher, to record flooding that hasn’t been seen before this time of year.

It’s been an awesome summer of boating at the lake house on Lake Wisconsin, and while it’s not over yet, I thought it would be fun to post some pictures recapping the summer. Lots of party coves, tiki bars, and sun! Continue reading Summer Boating

After following up for more information, I was eventually able to get ahold … Continue reading Boat Lift Fiasco
I finally took delivery of the new pontoon, which will go in the water later this week when Deano Docks installs the boat lift at the lake house. It’s currently sitting on a trailer at the lake house, but having it on the boat lift will make it far more convenient to take out frequently … Continue reading Pontoon Delivery
This week, Deano Docks came and put the dock in the water. Unfortunately, the boat lift cannot go in yet because the water levels are still so high. All of the April snow in northern Wisconsin has meant that we have extremely high water on the Wisconsin River (and thus Lake Wisconsin). Thankfully we have … Continue reading Dock is In!
