The weather cooperated this year for taking the docks out. The sun was shining, the wind was relatively calm and the temperature was in the low 50’s. All of this made the day go smoothly and quickly. The only glitch came when Mike Errington tripped on a submerged log and took a dive in the cold water. I wasn’t quick enough with the camera, but we all heard him. He was a trooper and finished helping take docks out. With 9 guys to help it only took them 2 1/2 hours to take the 84 sections of dock out and the boat lift. It helped that John and Dave took all the bolts out the day before.

Taking out the Woodside/Hillcrest dock.

It's good wood floats!

The main dock is the last to come out.

The piles are stacking up.

To get the boat station out they submerge a boat and run the pump to drain the water out of the boat and it lifts the station so they can float it over to the beach for storage.
