    Oh, when you quoted my golf cart post I thought you were in MacRay. We'll keep an eye out on the water then. We mostly hang out in Fisher, Barenaked, or Goose Bay. Hope to see you out there.

    Thanks, I talked to him when I was looking for golf carts. Thought maybe I would get the whole package and sell which ever dinghy was in the worst shape, his or mine that I have now. I'm still trying to talk myself out of calling him back and getting the davits. So far it's working.

    Edit: I just checked Craigslist and I think I see the ones you are talking about in Oxford. Thanks again

    The camera is aimed higher now. More privacy for boaters on Evergreen, less fun for viewers. :D

    I don't blame them. Somehow, my docks over the last 2 decades have had a great view, until I realize that those docks ARE a view... (even without cameras)

    At least I can still go to the arch to right of the flag and wave to everyone at work on my days off. I told them to look for me there if I'm not at work. :D

    Are you sure it isn't just the water out of level? I always use more fuel heading to the Clinton than I do on the way back.

    Hey everyone - Hope to be a new to me SR owner by Memorial weekend and will keep in a slip in LSC. A couple general question for the group: how often should you have the bottom cleaned? Is it scraped or pressure washed? How much is it $$per/ft? Thx!

    Do you have bottom paint?
    I only have mine power washed at the end of the season when it gets pulled out for its winter nap. I have ablative bottom paint on mine.
    Some places include power washing with their winter storage package. Last winter Beacon Cove started charging 150.00 for it.

    Ah, ok. I had read my times online about folks having the bottom cleaned monthly or regularly, but I guess they didn't have the bottom paint. The SR I'm trying to get does, although I don't know what kind yet. Thanks!

    Keeping my boat at MacRay the water seems to be pretty clean..every year at haul out it takes very minimal power washing but on the other hand my buddy keeps his boat on the river and he generally hauls two times threw out the season to wash because his boat bottom gets so gross so I kinda think how/where it is stored a d how often you use it does ha e something g to do with the cleanliness as well as what Joe said about having bottom paint

    Ok, all good info. I guess I'll have to see what the water is like at the marina and just go from there. Hopefully I'm out enough that it gets pressure washed by time on the water running around LSC!

    Well I’m floating. Started raining as we were lowered in. Started sleeting as we pulled into the well. Needless to say it was miserable. Went to bumpers and had a few beers though

    Good times as always!

    Good deal glad to hear everything went well except the weather.
    Thanks for stopping by the boat Saturday, it was nice chatting with you. Same goes to you also midexp (Greg). Can't wait to hangout and have a couple beers in some warm weather.
