Scull = automatic swim.

Maybe next year we can get  other Sculls  on Brandy Lake.  It is without a doubt the  most difficult water sport I have tried.   Cripes..I barefooted my first time out!

I took advantage of the recent warm weather ….however it was quite a shock all week jumping into  the CRISP water for the cool down swim.  Today… actually it’s back to 19 water temp so not so bad.    However.. ..my swim days are probably numbered soon due to cold weather moving in.

Hopefully next summer I can figure it out..maybe have some Shell row friends by then,

I should add …in this type of post…this is what I do….you need to to be your own judge….rowing a scull or shell puts a high level of stress on your entire body and could be fatal….only swim if conditions are safe..obey all local rules and suggestions regarding swimming.

 

 

 

3L Boat For Sale

Seeing if anybody on the lake wants it before we post it elsewhere.

$11,500.00 ……….  Time for a change!

2004 Bayliner with 3L Mercruiser engine. ..17 Foot c/w Monster Tower and Galvanized trailer

I “think” it is  in really nice condition..fold down  seats are fine…couple hard to spot scratches in the hull.  Always new oil and filter, very easy to winterize.

Replaced speedometer with GPS for accurate speeds in skiing and wake-boarding

Trim works fine but gauge bounces around sometime.  Oil pressure is at 40 psi at running speed and temp runs around 175.    New battery this year and newer tires on trailer with folding tongue.

Happy Lake 2

Happy Lake 2
After a few years of ugggg …we have a 2nd year in a row..of ..what seems like…awesome water….I just want HUG the lake.
 
Like last year…Visibility has gone from less than a meter in the spring to 1.2 to 1.3 today…a normal from years past… you can feel the mixing (balance) of cold and warm water again around your knees…lake side tress (are on dry land) and breathing again….trees….the lakes last line of defense…..meaning the lake is not grabbing as much nutrients..
 
This is an old picture …but we have a massive amount of Byrozoan cultivating on the side of our dock again… The colony is a sign of a healthy lake.. it’s said.
 
Our natural bay is chock full of marine life…
 
We all have a rock or whatever…mine is my dock connected to its 25 year old rings…
 
No alga so far for two years…I remember 3 and 4 years ago..not so good…and about 13 years ago…
 
Get out ..get in the water….enjoy ….we have a beautiful lake when happy!

STUPID 2

I still think the beer cans screwed to a board ranks as #1

The note  below from a concerned cottage is a pretty close 2nd.   The amount of effort they had to go through to “fix it” is one families  concern for environment

Just to inform fellow cottagers that recently some wanker left a very heavy box of garbage at the corner of Falkenburg and Brackenrig Roads.

It consists of paint cans,  paint brushes, rebar,  plastic sheeting etc.

Of course, the local waste management company would not dispose of it.

I went to the Town Offices in Port Carling, and spoke to Public Works. They informed me that they would come and take it away for me. Not sure if they have, since I haven’t been there in over a week.

It’s so disappointing that people would do this. Just to let you (me ..web guy) know, and our neighbours.
