Well, I got away with a foolish stunt for the 4th of July. We got hit with a really bad thunderstorm and extremely high wind, and the boat blew over on the lift. Now, picture this: I'm out in a massive thunderstorm, standing on the aluminum frame of a shore station, in 100 MPH winds, in a storm with massive lightning levels hitting the lake, and the lift is in the lake, sticking a 35' aluminum pole up in the air to keep my boat from being wrecked.
Now, after, when the lake calmed down, at least the fireworks were great off the lake barge. Mother Nature added hers, as lightning was popping around the whole horizon, as well and the thunder rolling in was nearly as loud as the fireworks.
