Cardude01...due to Lake Travis's fluctuating level, +/- 60' since '09, there's no travel lift that actually lifts a boat out of the water. Initially all boats ride out on a trailer & then transferred using a travel lift to either blocks & stands or to transport trailer as ours will Sept 30 for ride to Clear Lake. After we get some work done we'll motor to Rockport & be your neighbor at Cove Harbor.

Healhustler...at $1K for haul & tranfer, be happy with your travel lift fees. Ref our discussion about fuel tank access...I was almost giddy with excitement when I confirmed I have at least two 6" plates, one port & other centered & possibly one starboard but under AC unit.

Very cool! Glad to have another neighbor. Will you be in one of the covered slips?

Yeah Travis water level has been crazy the last few years. We had a boat on Travis back in 1996-1999. Had a houseboat hauled from Lake Conroe to Travis for some reason. Don't know what I was thinking. 😂

I've done a couple of surveys with Bob on old converted steel tugs (early 1900's). I did not feel qualified so passed the work on to Bob on condition that I got to hang over his shoulder. I learned a lot and can tell you he is a unique, funny, grumpy, witty, acerbic no nonsense, rule of thumb type character. You will be entertained in any conversation with the man.
