Is the launch open yet?
Is the launch open yet?
You are really wanting to try out that new boat, and I don't blame you.
Retirement Plan - Having Fun and Still Learning
Really wanting to get the boat on the water is an understatement. If the Glen is not open by this weekend I may just launch at man made lake, which is open, and head downstream.
We can get it into the river if you want to...just might take a little effort...I'm in
pull my finger....
20 mile looks ice free even an empty trailer there today.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming-----WOW-----what a ride!
We ran to the glacier from the old glenn hwy almost 3 weeks ago.
Guess it depends on what type of boat you have......(grin).

Nice boats, I launched in the small bodenburg lake many times when I had an airboat.
What was the water level like in the rocky spots a mile or so before the glacier?
BTW I think the Glenn launch will be open tomorrow.
Checked it out today still no dice i got in at the bridge in the butte last weekend but it took 2 trucks to unload and pull the truck out of the water
The middle boat is a mix of a couple boats, Air ranger being one of them.
The water level hid the boulder garden but they were still there.
I'm waiting for the Big Su to flush....come on summer!
Any word from this evening? Last I saw the launch was still iced over.
It's open. I stopped by on my way back from anchorage last night and there's open water from the bank to the other side. There's still some flow ice coming through, but when I pulled up my first thought was to go get the boat and come back. It was 9:30pm and I had a tired wife and a sleeping baby so I got vetoed, but I'll be out there sometime this week.
Thanks for the update. Did you drive down to the boat launch or just view it in the northbound lane? It was deceivingly open above the bridge but still iced over below.
Yep, I went down to the launch. Water is way down but it's open. Could be a problem puttin the boat in, but I'm throwing caution to the wind because I'm dying to get out!
Thanks for the updates. As a result I had the chance to get the boat on the water for the first time. The boat flat out rips and handles like its on rails. It sure put a smile on our faces.
Erne, good talking with you at the launch, hope to see you on the water this summer.
Also a big thanks goes out to the guy that helped me trailer the boat earlier in the day.
