That looks like it is coming along great. I have to ask though, how are you going to get your boat in and out of your slip with that grass in the way? Bill Z

Here's the finished results - edging both sides which I'll do later today.

The grass directly behind the boat, I'll have to pull out by hand.
The remain'n sides I'm leav'n to act as a buffer protection for backwash from other boats, also saves my shoreline from wash'n out as well.

Sorry, after a long day in the sun and on the water, I read "brought" as "bought" and was shocked to see that, knowing what you've done to it over the last year or so and what great shape it was in....didn't think you could find anything that would measure up.:D

Recently booked to take the kids to Disney March 17-24. Staying at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club on International Drive. Have already been talking to my wife about me taking a 1/2 day to attend a BF clinic (Scarpa, St Onge, Bowers, ????) somewhere in the area or at least get a couple sets in.......means on warm WI days in Jan/Feb I'll be trying to get out to get some water time.
