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.

Here is a (poorly Photoshopped) rendition of where I am planning on putting the boat: I’ll post more updates as I go through the planning stages for … Continue reading Boat Lift + Boat Shopping
At long last, we finally have a dock. It took months of work for the dock installation company, Deano Docks, to get the dock designed and fabricated, but it finally has arrived. It’s a floating dock, so it attaches to the stairs via a hinge and is able to move up and down with the … Continue reading We Finally Have a Dock!
