Bill and Ed on a Boat trip - note the spare motor just in case you needed it

Original Boat House - the spring ice breakup took out the boat house in 1947 - they had a team of horses to pull Margret Cochenours boat out of the boat house just before it colapsed.

The ice piled up on the point that year to the hight of the roof of the cabin.
