    Here they want smaller rock for rip rap and they want dirt mixed in with it. Their reason is they want stuff to grow and cover up the rock but heaven forbid if some run off gets in the lake.

    What kind of workboots is your Dad wearing in the dock pic? They look wicked comfy!

    Here are some more pictures, The first two are of the 330 lifting out our push boat, 6,500lb thumb and 22,000lb boat :weightlifter: I was impressed

    Then we couldn't't get the barge closer so had to jump the 315 over the gap, wish i could have gotten a picture

    The trailer pic is of the ramp holders we made last Friday and the last one is of my little brother 20ft above the lake.:waving:

    Looks like you guys have a sweet shop too! How do you like the angle iron on your beaver tail and ramps versus having wood? I may do that to our trailer this winter, better traction and it doesnt rot!

    I know you guys are boating all the time, but I couldnt stand having my boat shoes full of dirt all the time. Does he dump them out a lot? LOL.

    The angle iron on the beaver tail is a must, I slid off once when it was wood with the 315 and now it is much much better.

    Dad is dumping his shoes out all of the time:laugh:

    You sure have a bunch of interesting projects there! Keep the pics coming!

    PS- What kind of price premium is attached to your type of work? Do your barges and boats all have hourly rates? Also, how much was your 330? Feel free to PM me if you want :drinkup:
