July 6, 1988 - Oops - I think we may have
left it a bit late to move the boats out ...
Notice that this shows the shed before the extensions - boats stored
parallel to the water;
a sliding gate at each end (this meant we had to angle the boats out
through the doors
- lots of fun with an eight)
Outside - not a major river
rise, but still a nuisance.
This shot also shows the old "boulevarde" walkway in front of
Boats had to be carried through two openings in this walkway
to get to the river.
Notice also that the judge's hut is not yet built
on top of the corner of the shed.
Another shot inside -
notice the old sliding gates
Yet another shot inside -
all the boats from the lower racks were taken out of the shed not longer
after this, but the river did not rise much further.
