Wow- I guess we dodged a bullet here, I left a day early for a race in Phx- my new to me daytona nestled under cover, on my lift, in the dock with a little heater/ air dryer to keep the moisture under control.

We left early to get under the weather- but still ended up driving through 12 hrs of it- came home to this thread.

I've been on a lot of docks on our lake and a few yrs back looked at buying a company that builds docks/lifts. Even new docks seem to have a range of design with varying amounts of flotation (easy to see the "freeboard" or margin on the flotation), size/qty of uprights and often minimal diagaonal; bracing. The older stuff is all over the map. I've been to several of the shops over the years and let's just say there is a wide range of fab design and ability, let alone laying a weld bead.

On our lake the corp has to approve the plans and stuff gets tighter all the time, cost is driven up, people look for ways to have a competitive bid and the cost gets shaved somewhere.

I need to find out how my insurance works in this type event and have a plan- look for the new specifics down the road

My own community dock is pretty old but has good bracing- just needs fresh encapsulated flotation. we've always kept an eye on inches of snow on the roof and had good margin, but the ice is much more dense.

Anything happen to Millers Landing at 21mm? He had a nice dock system that was only 5yrs old.

Around here we used to call these freak snowstorms "WINTER TIME." In the 70's you expected several storms like this every year. When this storm went through, the weathermen all said they had not seen this kind of snowfall since 1979. I think people have forgotten what midwest snow storms used to be like.

I agree, its been mild in KC for a number of years IMO, although more ice especially Nov. & Dec. I do not think this one will be soon forgotten however.


Speaking with a client of mine which holds the paper on more than a few residential and mult-unit structures. This will be effecting their thinking on lending policy for the time being.

Shane,
Your dock doesn't appear to have any damage at all--floating nice and high with very little snow on the roof.

It didn't translate that way to me. I just thought you were being a dumba__. Looks like you were really trying to just lighten the mood.

BTW, don't ever try to become a comedian People might not pick up on the punch line
