The blog of the design, construction, and launching of the vessels "The Floating Empire" and "Tesla's Revenge", both floating tinyhomes made from recycled or repurposed materials.
How safe is it to be out there on the floating docks while the water is still frozen? It is a beautiful shot, but I just think it would be a little slick on the dock because of all the snow and ice. I wonder if the dock gets damaged for being in this sort of cold condition. http://www.dockaccents.com/floating-docks.htm
Actually, Zach, we don't have floating docks here at the Marina, they're fixed, which does cause some challenges in some of the more extreme north wind driven low tides we've experienced this winter. The marina runs Ice Eaters, a sort of underwater fan, to move warmer bottom water up to the surface and break up the ice, which protects both the boats and the pier pilings from the ice. Seems to wrk pretty well.But we are more than ready for spring.
