Before leaving for England, I had a weekend at the cabin. The boat house is leaning more and more towards the lake and I have not been able to store the boat inside for over a year now, so I decided (with help from Teres’ dad) to begin repairs.
We attached a winch between the back of the boat house and the concrete foundation under the sauna and pulled the boat house backwards until it was reasonably vertical.
I have then screwed fast horizontal and diagonal supports to the walls and roof inside the boat house to keep it vertical once the winch was released.
This is just a temporary repair so that the boat house survives the winter. Nest year the real work will begin to re-build it!!
