Getting Great Laker out of Winter Storage

Today we brought Great Laker back home to our dock. The process of getting her out of the building, onto a trailer and then into a sling for lowering her into the water is quite interesting and a bit daunting. Fortunately the marina workmen are very experienced at this and there were no issues.

Note the fabulous buff and wax job on the exterior. I spent many hours up and down ladders getting that mirror perfect shine. Colored hulls are not common on the Great Lakes and this one really draws attention and many compliments.

After getting her into the water and checking out all the systems, I determined that things were a go and we brought her 2 miles north on Spring Lake to the dock. It is comforting to be able to look out the window at any time and see that she is safe.
