Worn

The rope is worn, where it rides over the top of the whip. I checked that area for burrs or wear points, and there doesnt appear to be any. Is the stainless dowel at the top of the whip supposed to...

Whip Rope

We have been using whips now on our dock for about 5 years, but in the last few years we've noticed that we only get a season or so out of our whip ropes. Part of this is due to being in a busy...

Thank you for the information. Very helpful. I spoke to the electric company and they explained that all their meters are 200amp, so one less thing to worry about. To Bear Islander,...

Fact not Opinion

1) Democrats and Republicans both use their own influence to get what they want incorporated into bills all the time. If both sides did not agree to the "pork" that is added by both sides, we would...

Thin Ice

I havent been up to the lake recently, but based on all of the cameras that I have access to, it looks like the ice doesn't have much longer to survive. The ice is starting to look brown in places...

Miss It

We live on Sleeper directly across from the camera and it is always nice to see what the weather is, and in the spring, knowing when the ice ACTUALLY goes out. We are definitely going to miss it. ...
