    Barge Man, what do you do after the lakes freeze up?

    I try to have a few normal excavating or demo projects lined up. This winter I have a good size ditch job and a old crane barge that we have to dismantle and bring to our shop. I may also have a condo marina job, and if that happens we will take the barge there and bubble the harbor so we can work when the rest of the lake freezes. We also bring every piece of equipment in the shop and service and detail them.

    They make bubbler's that big? I've only used ones big enough to keep stock ponds and the water in front of my duck blind open.

    Ya we have three big ones they will each open up about a 30 to 50 foot circle, more if you have some wind or a small current.

    Looks sharp! What would a job like that run? You can pm me if you want. Just wondering what type of premium barge jobs bring.
