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.


Gravel mostly cleared out


Hacking away at the 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.
