Big boat?

I'm not sure what a big boat is. In the 50's my family owned a 30' cruiser. A big boat for the day. Now, a 25' (common) deep vee will throw a bigger wake, never mind what a 20' wake boat will do. ...

You're right

You're right., Launch ramps and parking lots were mostly built before we were worried about milfoil, zebra mussels and contaminated bilge water. The Public Water Access Advisory Board (PWAAB) from...

Mine is manual, so I agree with others that you shouldn't need it except for a couple of summer months. I believe some of the more sophisticated machines would have a humidity sensor and shut down...

Clean Drain and Dry

I hope the plans will include space for boats coming in and out of the launch ramps will have space to clean drain and dry away from the ramp itself so that potentially contaminated bilge water, bait...

There is some drawdown every year first to maintain flow downstream, and second to compensate for spring run-off and snow melt. Predicting rainfall, snow etc vs saturation in the watershed is...

Missed it this year. How many stem boats had dogs? Had I been a spectator boat, Daisy would have been on the bow. Her friends, Brandy and Kodiak, more restrained, would sit in the stern.

No kitty litter

Whether Septic or sewer, that's not the place to be dumping kitty litter. Same with "flushable" wipes. Regardless of the label, they don't break down and cause significant additional...

Was Biketember successful? We were in Saunders Bay for the evening and not aware of any bike noise. We had no trouble hearing music from Meadowbrook.

Both

If you have a dog, or know your gusts have a dog, there is some responsibility to discuss everything ahead of time. You ask about who's bringing food, drinks, towels, etc. right? and how long people...

Transfer station

If you can get it to the (Mk, right?) transfer station, they'll take it. There are lots of services that will pick up and remove almost anything that isn't fastened down, but then you have to pay.

Diy?

A bicycle shop may have used large balloon wheels/tires that can be either attached to the boat or used to build a cradle. I have a Sandusky Garden cart that I've used to carry 100's lbs of stone. ...

does it hold water?

Is it upright? After rain, does it hold water? If not, that could explain the apparent abandonment. If it is on association property, there may be by-laws that deal with such situations, allowing...
