    Double Bimini top.....

    Went to a concert by boat last night. A local artist plays on a dock in a cove and all of the boats anchor or raft up. On the way there is a low railroad trestle bridge. Well the biminis had to be taken down and put in the trailer position to fit under. Then once under we had to reassemble...

    Mini barnacles in a fresh water lake?!

    Anchored in a No Wake cove today and after lunch decided to do some pontoon and outboard cleaning. Felt little "bumps" on the outboard and found this. Some can be scraped off with my fingernail and some can be rubbed off with a rag. Some break when you try to scrape it and turns white. Some...
