For driving 6"x12" I use a 5"x10" piece of wood to keep control of it. It also helps keep the noise down. When we drive 6"x6" beam I have a different adapter plate that I put on that has a 10" round pipe stub on the bottom so I have control of the pile.

The barges are attached by using angle iron that overlaps and then 2" steel pins go through both the top and bottom angle every 3'

all depends on how much water you have flowing into the lake.

just guessing I'd say it might get a inch or two a day? will pull it down faster once the lake drops as it gets smaller.

I'd throw 2 or 3 6" siphons or just splurge and get a 8 or 12" siphon.
