jeffx, one of the nice things about my lake is that it is dam controlled. The water level is dropped about 2 feet which puts my main dock out of the water. The dock that I have the boats on extends out a bit farther, but in 7 years of neglecting it (not pulling it out), it has only had superficial winter damage. Same with the ski boat lift. I do pull the jetski lifts out as they are pretty light.
I did notice that the patio set on the main dock blew off the dock and off into the beach. The tempered glass top shattered, so I will have to shovel a bit to get rid of the glass.
Most of the boats are in the barn ready for winterizing. But I have some time there as the barn is heated.
Well, got the majority of the winterizing done. The MLIrrigation / Rain8Net did a great job in self winterizing the sprinkler system. I put a Grainger brand air solenoid on the water manifold, and through some MLServer MLTimers, I cycled the air thru the zones 3 times alternating Air / Water Valve1, Air / WaterValve2, etc. allowing 3 minute inbetween for the aircompressor to build up again. Pretty slick. I'll post some pics of the air setup maybe tomorrow.
Well, got the MLTheaterTek beta out today. Works nice!
