RiverBills Pictures of the Day.... were sent to us by Capt'n Rick Estes

 

Hey, Bill,

Friday we took the Y2Katy out for fuel and one last cold ride before winterizing. Pete Tully himself gassed us up at Polestar. Then back to Lake Center to finish. We were cold and hungry when we got done, so off to Massa's for dinner. As you can see we ran into Paul Grubbs of Lake Center fame and his beautiful bride, Stephanie. Good food and good company on our last day of 2016 boating.

 

See you on the river, buddy!

 Sail From Palisades to Grafton

Yesteryear's Picture of the Day in 2012......  were sent to us by Capt'n Mike Costello

 

Saturday we put together 9 sailboats and sailed from Palisades to Grafton. We had Lunch at the Ruebel Restaurant. They have great food and a restored bar from the 1904 World's Fair, very impressive. Grafton is always fun and all the restaurants and stores always appreciate the business. After that we strolled down and got an ice cream before we headed back to our boats. Yes, eating ice cream in December on the streets of Grafton, sweet. It was 72 degrees. The breezes picked up considerably on the way back and we all rolled into our harbors about dusk. It was a great day.

 

Thanks Barry for putting it together for us. Sandy Costello snapped the photos of Matt Flerlage’s boat, Tuesdays Child with the colorful genoa. Denny Swandt is crewing for him.

Boating Lifestyle

A Few Gift Ideas For Christmas........

 

Boating season may be over, and as Christmas time draws near, many people are wondering what to get their boater for Christmas.

 

Water toys are always a good option, and a floating beverage cooler will be a big hit.  Another option is the WOW, or Walk on Water Pad, which ties to a boat's stern, and provides a nice raft to swim to.

 

Gift certificates for safe boating courses are another nice option, as are updating safety equipment........

 

Click here to read more from cranstononline.com.

We offer full fiberglass repair, high performance upgrades, transom & stringer rebuilds, service on older products, new & used parts department, an accessories department, as well as many other services to suit everyone's boating needs.

We continue to display our Yamaha Sport Boats, Crest + Manitou Pontoons, Mercury + Yamaha Outboards and Heritage & Haul Rite trailers

Mississippi And Missouri Rivers

Guides To Both Rivers Launched........

 

A pair of interactive maps of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers were recently released, and they have proven to be quite popular with recreational boaters paddlers, and anglers.

 

The Mississippi River Geotourism MapGuide developed out of a partnership between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Geographic Maps.  The MapGuide took two and a half years to assemble and execute, and is a considerable asset for anyone planning on visiting the 10 Mississippi River states.

 

The Missouri River Outdoor Recreation Access Guide showing 164 public access sites for boating, paddling and fishing along the 400 mile path of the Missouri River between Missouri and Nebraska.  This guide is also a source for navigation information along the river, including river mile markers and boat ramps........

River History....

 

05 December 1963 in River History

 
 05 December, 1963 in River History

Three painters from the Star Sign Co. began painting their version of the Piasa Bird on a bluff that overlooks the Mississippi River above Alton. A few weeks, prior, crews from the Hellrung Construction Company worked to prepare the bluff for paint. They had to remove close to a half ton of rock from the surface of the bluff, and then the 2,500 square foot area received a base coat. The painting replaced a previous duplication of Piasa Bird that had been removed during the construction of the Great River Road........

 

It was repainted on a steel plate in 1984 and hung from the bluff like a sign.

 

 

The current version of the Piasa Bird was painted on bluff in 1999.

 

 

 

 

 

Boating Safety

Boating Tips That May Save Your Life........

 

While many boaters have put their boats away for the season, there are many die-hard boaters and anglers that will still be hitting the water in spite of the chilly temperatures.

 

Fall and winter boating seasons are quite different than boating in the spring and summer, and as a result, boaters need to practice safe boating habits.

 

Officials recommend wearing a life jacket, remaining sober while boating, keep the running lights on when operating a boat in darkness, file a float plan with family and friends, and keep a cell phone in a secure, dry space........

Mississippi River Near Guttenberg, Iowa

Iowa DNR Studying Rarely Seen Salamanders........

 

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and a Minnesota Herpetologist are studying the mudpuppy, which is a rarely seen salamander.

 

The group is in the second year of studying the mudpuppy, who are a protected species, and are considered to be threatened in Iowa.

 

IDNR fisheries biologist Kevin Hanson traps the mudpuppies in pool 11, weighs and measures them, and determines their sex.  Hanson then takes a skin sample for genetic analysis, and implants an electronic tag, that will help track the salamander's movements........

Missouri River At Cannon Ball, North Dakota

Corps Blocks Dakota Access Pipeline At The Missouri River........

 

On Sunday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced that they will not grant an easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline in the southern portion of North Dakota.

 

Opponents to the four state, $3.8 billion project claim that the project threatens a water source and cultural sites.  The project is mainly complete, with the exception of the now-blocked section that was to have passed under Lake Oahe.

 

Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy announced in a news release that her decision was based upon the need to explore alternate routes for the pipeline's crossing........
