[QUOTE=Woodsong;99235]Don, somehow missed seeing your post quoted above until now but how is this possible? I thought you were only 29?!
That's got to be the same dock. Funny thing- earlier this summer we went over there and there were a bunch of people gathered around a campfire hanging out. I had always assumed it was part of the state park since, well, it's all within the state park land there!
So we hop over with the dog in the dinghy, tie up, walk over and just started chatting away with them. I then found out it was their dock. They said their family had built it many years ago and he now owned the cabin that was associated with the dock. He said they pretty much were claiming squatters rights for the dock at this point even if it is on park land.
Anyway- family I was talking to said their grandparents had built the cabin and dock some many years ago and that the cabin had been in their family for generations and they came up for summer vacations. They told us we could use the dock any time and we had a good time visiting with them for a bit. They recognized our boat as always being anchored out there and they keep their ski boats in dry stack at Island Cove. small world!
BTW, since you built the dock- is it still under warranty? Dock is holding up
Nope, no warranties in effect. It was only warranted to the original owners.
Tony, that is truly amazing. Their grandfather had to have been J. M. Ferry. He and Tom Malone (Uncle Tommy) bought the land together and split it. They built two identical cabins. I helped on the Malone cabin, and we built the dock for both to use. The Ferrys had a daughter named Mickey. She has to be their mother. She was my age. I first dated my late wife at that cabin. Many, many memories. We boys slept out on the sleeping porch. Gosh. did we have fun.
