Just for those of you that are interested, a short video of carry graders and our scraper working. The dam is all finished, just waiting to mount up the pump. Need a little more rain and we will be away pumping http://youtu.be/qMqj-zU-Neg

Hey Mark, I will give you a call about the opening. If I get to fill it. No need to bring your boat just the slab. Cheers,Peter.

Just a ski lake update. I have somewhere about 7 feet in it at the moment and another 4 to go. Rain has slowed up a bit so have had to slow the pump down. Going to use approx. 1000 Litres of diesel to fill (250US Gal) if I keep going at this rate. Have Fun........

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Very impressive undertaking!

Video of man made Lake Delton (WI Dells, WI) when the earthen dam built in 1927 let loose and drained the lake in 2008.

Mate! That's looking good!!! I thought I had a big fuel bill but that much diesel is serious. Will do a rain dance for you...
