Lake Hefner update

I thought everyone would enjoy a picture of Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City. As you can see most of the slips are dry! Directly behind these boats is where the haulout crane is located. It is a few hundred yards from any water deep enough to float anything more than a row boat. Maybe the foot of snow will help.

It's so odd seeing boats resting upon jack stands while in their slips. I must ask however, what happened to the forward boat's rudder?

Dry slips

I can't say for sure, it's not mine. I assume the owner removed it to avoid damage. Most of the owners are trying to do what they can to minimize damage but there are others that haven't seen their boat in months are in for a suprise. I am afraid that the lake level will drop several feet more. Two years ago they had the J-22 nationals on this lake. I'm lucky, my boat is on another lake and it is only 5-6 down and I can still sail.

That boat in the foreground looks awful precarious. Can't see any chain connecting the stands. Best of luck.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yes, but it looks like those lines would have caused a problem even if the boat were floating...of course, that's probably just an illusion caused by the reflection of the keel and boat in the water... but I would guess that the keel is almost touching the bottom there...and the fact that these appear to be floating docks.

I sure hope the owner of the rudderless boat returns - before the water level rises back to normal. Otherwise, he's in for a bigger surprise when the boat floats off the stands and water fills his bilge through the rudder post hole.

That looks like a J-30 to me, which has a rudder that is hung with pintles on the transom. If I'm right (and I may not be, hard to tell in a photo) he is probably fine.
