    I have insurance and this is due to wind damage, I'm sure its covered but the deductible is high so my son and i already removed the swim platform and I'm pretty handy and already have fiberglass and resin so its going to be a winter project that shouldn't take too long, what helps is I have good friend that owns a body collision shop near me and he's letting me use the facilities to do the work in.....yes heated! Going to go over the whole platform and repair chips and redo the non-skid on the surface! if the non-skid turns out good, my plan is to do the cockpit and gunwale in spring when all the other Yachts are out of storage. Happy Boating

    The water level in my area was pretty consistent except for this one day, the wind was blowing 50 MPH inland towards our marina and the water level went up about two feet and...causing the swim platform to snag the docks. I can make a claim but deductible is too high for the amount of damage. As you know making a claim only increases the premiums and I don't want to give the insurance company to have an excuse to raise it. Happy Boating

    We took the kids(my daughter/grandkids) out of school for the Total Lunar Eclipse. These were taken on Morse Lake which is close to Indianapolis Indiana. The picture of the sun was taken at the moment of totality for Indianapolis.

    Step son had the idea of making his own glasses. He took 4 strips of the darkest car window tint and put them on the cardboard. This picture was taken with my Digital Nikon 7000 while aiming thru the strips of window tint.

    For the last 6 years we have taken our camper and boat to Muskegon State Park for 11 nights. This year the water on the big lake was calm enough for us to take her out 9 days.

    This year the water temperature was not conducive to swimming. Heck, is was barely warm enough to wade in. 60 degrees most of the time. We were able to swim in Muskegon Lake but it was not enjoyable.

    Every year I try to make a compilation of the summer, and every year i say maybe it will include some non-boating videos. This was not the year lol

    Anyways, check it out - Boating out of Rochester, NY. Footage in the video is from Irondequoit Bay, Lake Ontario, Genesee River, Sodus Bay, and Cobourg, Ontario.

    Strecker, nice video. Great shots, really makes me want to get back out on the water but I have about 5.5 months to go. In the meantime, there is a lot of fiberglass to wax.

    Great video Strecker!! I wish I could make one like that but my summer videos will consist of mostly kids sports now with a cameo or two of the boat! Still has me looking forward to next summer though. Nice job!

    Steve, just curious because I've never had a boat shrink wrapped--do you leave the slant back canvas on or remove it? Are there advantages to leaving it on or removing it prior to shrink wrapping?

    no , the crew will remove the canvas and leave me a little zipper access door, I believe they just collapse and fold back the top canvas on the bows. I plan on taking the isinglass home to work on over the winter. at my marina, the yard offers a package that includes everything soup to nuts for winterizing / wrapping and launching. its really not bad considering the cost and time I would need to do the same.

    Fun thread, I love boat videos and pics. Here is a video I just finished with footage from Summer 2017. I am a musician and did the soundtrack.
