Good. Dry though. Would love some rain! Barges are running aground near LaCrosse WI.


Heading your way in Sept. Staying in Granby so we can hike the park.

My wife's cousin built this boat and launched it this year. He told me he was building a boat, but I never saw it until she said it was in the local paper. I'll have to get some pics of it and get a ride before summer ends.

Grid cooler fouled with marine growth



Me inspecting the bow thruster hub.




Our Anchor chain. 16oz cup.



Someone else's anchor chain.




Clean with a fresh coat of paint.
