Dock Project

Until recently, we haven't really paid any attention to the dilapidated boathouse and dock at Glenlochan since our original Boathouse Blues.  The time had come, however (actually had long ago passed) to give some serious attention to the unusable eyesore.  Marine building is beyond our area of expertise and we don't own any of the necessary equipment, so this project had to be contracted out, unfortunately.  Like in any profession, a contractor is not a good customer to another contractor!

Here's our starting point - the very old boathouse and the pier that could not be trusted:

Demolition and debris removal was the first step:

 The pier hit the chopping block first:

 And then the boathouse was no more:

 After we bid a fond farewell to the boathouse and the last of the debris was carted away, new pilings and other materials were delivered:

 Constructing the new dock was the next job:

 Even Tosha had to explore it.
 And the finished dock project:

Construction of the new boathouse is the next and final step.  In the meantime, the dock is available for fishing and enjoying the water and we have been!
