just beer-can tin for shade...

look at the aluminum uprights and thin materials, what would you expect would happen?

the lifts are worth 30x more than the metal around them.

We got the same storm in Northeast Oklahoma before it headed to LOTO. 2-3" of sleet followed by 8-12" of snow. Does anyone know if there was any damage on Grand Lake?

I was glad today that the boat is safe and warm at the factory. But then my neighbor called me tonight and said the dock was fine, and had no sign of being low in the water.

I feel pretty lucky right now. But I know you miss smowmobiling up here!

Depends on the dock. The new ones with 2x2 box steel are pretty strong. Plus some put the uprights at a lesser distance than others.
