    Thank you!
    It's a GHS platform. IMO the nice thing about GHS lifts is the swim ladder is built in too. I don't believe SeaLift's have them. I'm not sure about the TNT's. Maybe someone can chime in

    Launch went off without a hitch. Bottoms Up has a wet bottom now. 20180423_102940.jpg 20180423_103305.jpg 20180423_170029.jpg 20180423_170012.jpg

    You're welcome!

    I received an email from BM with the numbers. One of our members on M-S.com was kind enough to map them out on Google Earth.

    Last year... I was told they were there, I knew where they were.... I remembered they were there and I still ran right up to them... Those nets are like a boat magnet or they have some kind of special force that attracts fish and guys that drive boats...

    Isn't that the truth!

    Years back we made the run to Oscoda. Started trolling around Tawas Point and the bottom machine lit up like a christmas tree. Yup, we trolled right into the throat of one of Lixie's nets. They mark them, but marginally at best!

    I splashed Thursday! Very excited. She took the slow cruise out the Clinton river and up on plane across lake to its home again at Bouvier Bridge Marina. All systems checked and the beer fridge still gets cold. Now I have to clean up and tr at the camper canvas today.

    I'm jealous. I help my friend splash his 40da tomorrow, but mine doesn't go in until May 10th.

    There was a lot of debris in the Clinton River including logs. Good news was there was no visible poop floating so that’s good.

    especially with this high water. I've never seen the water this high.

    Plan was to splash this morning, but I got put on hold while a guy in front of me in the building takes his sweet time to redo his teak on an old trawler. The marina said they would move him and charge him for re-blocking but there isn't anyplace to put him. This guy does this every year. Oh well, looks like next Thursday now due to work schedule. Can't wait!!!!!

    That's complete BS. What marina are you at? Where I am, They put you in when you are scheduled. No if's ands or buts, They can drop up to 24 boats a day.

    Agreed! That’s not your problem, it’s the marina’s problem. I hope storage was cheap, because that’s lousy service.

    If same storage I was in next bay getting launched on tuesday... there were boats in front of you that couldn't get launched that day and no warning so they showed up to find out they weren't getting launched. That particular person told me the trawler does it every year... I dont understand why you wait until May to do your teak when you had all winter... Summers are to short to sit on land in nice weather
