We Build the Dry Dock

 

 

Once I built a boat this big!!

Here it is... The building frame almost complete. All the boards are 2x6 bolted together. The sides are made of two 2x6's bolted together to make a 4x6 side.

 
Looking down the building form from a ladder. The Sandi Lee pontoons will extend about 2 feet past the sides.

 
Here you can see the start of the frame for the tarp covers. They are electrical conduit pipes bolted together. We have been very busy!!!

Leave it to me....

After really huffing and puffing trying to hammer the first pole into the ground, I came up with an idea..... Sandi says I'm really a lazy person so that's why I come up with all these bright ideas.... I got the garden hose and put it down into the pipe and washed a hole in the ground. Each pipe went into the ground effortlessly. Like putting a hot knife through soft butter! That is until I reached the last pipe. On this one, the dirt closed in around the hose and Sandi and I could not pull it out!!! So..... That center pole has a cut off section of our garden hose still in it.........

I still can't figure out how I did that........
