Islands are a pain. We have one and found putting erosion mat under the rocks helps a lot.

The guys built barges and we loaded wheel barrows and buckets and then floated them over. Lots of people to get the job done in two days

That is what we did after we graded them and then put the rock on top. Those islands were about 20yrs old

That looks like a lot of hard work... Looks good too! Can you plant a palm tree in the middle???

We can only put one on the south island due to the harvest nets

Looks great B. Looks like a fun project too. Seeing that slope reminds me how I got all that mud on my fin ;) My fat butt sure didn't help the erosion at all.

Seems this will be the first season in a while that you and David are up to full recovery at the same time.
