The joys of a North Idaho winter, it was so mild all year, then we got the polar vortex and the years snowfall in 3 weeks. I went up to check the cover and it was crazy that it was still held. I took over an hour to shovel 18 inches of snow. The pic shows the less affected side, the port side had even more as it is exposed to more of the wind with less shelter from the boats houses. The best tool for the job was my kids plastic shovel. Insane level fo snow, glad it held. Thankfully the boat is dry below. A boat down the dock sank when the freeze came. Failed to close seacock, plastic raw water strainer broke and flooded boat I guess. I double checked all mine again.
