Digging Out the Dock Frame

We didn’t set up the dock this summer because it had been buried by the flooding in the Spring. I had stored it under the boathouse the previous autumn to keep it out of the winter weather. Who would have thought we’d get a 100 year water level.

Here is how it looked after being buried.

The dock is under the sand and gravel.

Success, finally freed

I decided it was time to rescue it so I could use it next summer. It took a lot of digging, swearing and digging some more before it came free.
