Summertime water fun



My son-in-law wanted to build a swim raft for Father's day. He built it in his driveway. Then he got a crew together and we all loaded it on my sailboat trailer. I had to remove one of the guide poles to fit in on, but it traveled very well.



After launching at the boat ramp my daughter, granddaughter, son-in-law paddled it over to my beach. Brownie the sailor dog refused to be left behind.


So now it sits at my beach, ready for summer party time.

  1. Every self respecting beach needs a swimming raft...

  4. Too bad the ice will make you take it back out, but I know it will be worth all the trouble because of all the fun that you and your family and friends will have on (and jumping off of) it.

    1. We'll be able to just drag it up on the beach and it'll be fine.

  5. I'm guessing that's your O'Day in the last photo (nice). Just wondering, is the mast difficult to raise and lower?

    1. Yep, that's the O'Day. I raise the mast myself. It helps if someone attaches the forestay, but I can do it alone.
