“Essentially the dock has reached the end of it’s functional life. “CL Cabin Master, Dave Conroy and Assistant Solveig Barnes
The Clear Lake dock has taken a brutal beating after the first round of storms that took place at the beginning of the year. Simply put, the docks structural frame work and floatation’s have deteriorated and failed. Three out of the nine dock sections are damaged, where the structural frame and tire floats are unsalvageable. If we are to have a 2023 Clear Lake Season with a safe and operable dock, we will need to replace these section ASAP.
The unfortunate true, the Club does not have enough savings to fully cover the cost of replacing the critical 3 dock sections that must be replaced. As a nonprofit club, we are asking everyone’s help and support to keep the heart and soul of this cabin afloat.
The board has approved funds to assist in replacing the most significantly damaged section and temporarily fixing the other two. The hard truth, the entire dock will not last another season if we only apply temporary fixes and band aides. The board agrees that this is a huge undertaking financially and physically and we recognize that this project needs to be completed thoroughly and professionally.
We have formed a committee of qualified and dedicated members/professionals that have put together a budget and game plan to execute this project. If you are interested in joining this committee, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The estimated cost per dock section, including shipping, is roughly $4,600-$5,000.
Our goal is to raise $45,000 for this dock revival project before the end of the 2023 Clear Lake season.
We built and installed the first dock section spring of 2023 in an effort to save our summer season use of the dock.
We managed as a crew to deconstruct, reuse what we could and rebuild a sturdy, reliable dock structural frame that will outlast the next 20 years.
We couldn’t have done this without our incredibly dedicated members and friends who volunteered their time, tools, and patience building this section.
Thank you Allen Hinkelman, Solveig Barnes and Dave Conroy for taking the initiative back in 2019 to tackle the the deteriorating 15 year old dock and turning a dream into a reality.
Thank you to all our volunteers who helped build this dock section and turned our winter cabin into summer ready ship shape!
