Early Lift In postponed to April 28

Old Man Winter staged a comeback these past few days, with everything from rain to freezing rain to ice pellets to snow and whiteouts!   And add to that high winds on the weekend.  With all that has been thrown at us,  and no time to prepare boats for lift in, the EARLY LIFT IN HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO APRIL 28, 2018.

Early lift-in will now be on Saturday April 28 starting at 8:00. Lift-in will start on the East wall. Generally the east wall lift-in goes quickly and if all goes well should finish around noon. Lunch will be served, then the crane will move to the parking lot. We do not have many boats scheduled to be lifted, so it should be over quickly. If there are boats on trailers to be lifted, make sure you are ready to go. Full crews for slings and cradle moving have volunteered.

Late lift-in will take place on Saturday, May 12. Lift-in will start on the North wall. If all goes well, the North wall should finish around 11:00 then the crane will move to the parking lot. The parking lot will be very busy since most of the boats wanted to be lifted in late. Full crews for slings and cradle moving have volunteered. Extra people for the parking lot are welcome since we have to split the crew between the parking lot and the dock.

We ask that people not directly involved with the lift-in stay out of the area. Boats will not be lifted if people are present in the lift area.
