2017 Docks In Amidst Big Floods

In 2016, we had to lift the east floating dock, to mate it to the fixed dock …
2017 Docks In was a soggy affair …
Several weeks after docks-in day, the lake was STILL rising …
… and rising …
… and rising …
… and RISING!
still going up …
and up …
Use the committee boat launcher? Forget it!
What we came up with were bridges over troubled waters. By the first of June, we had bridged the gaps!
No need to walk through 3 feet of water to reach the dock …
Here’s the high water mark …
Our western dock watery crevasse is again navigable …
No need now for the crew to wear rubber boots, to get back to the clubhouse!
We’ll just have to row out to the end of the dock!
Sure glad we wore our rubber socks!
In 2017, we were up to our knees in water, feeling for the fixed dock fittings!
