Adding To Our Fleet

It is with great pleasure to announce that we recently added to our dependable fleet of barges with a brand new, made in Kentucky barge.  This new addition will allow us to work more efficiently with a larger deck for the excavator to maneuver and mobilize material.  Our team worked closely with RPS Barge Company to design a custom 24' x 60' sectional barge.  Once it arrived in our yard in Meredith we prepped it with protective mats, cleats, ramps, and other equipment.

Spring Is Here (Kind of)!

It has been another long and grueling winter here up on Lake Winnipesaukee, but that's how we like it.  The weather did not stop our crew from working during the cold, short days repairing the docking system at Quayside Yacht Club in Moultonborough.  Now the calendar officially says its spring and we are putting together our "ice out" schedule which includes new dock projects, a boathouse, perched beaches, and of course all our seasonal dock installs.

A Cold Winter Has Lasting Effects

New Hampshire winters are always cold, but this past year seemed to last a little bit longer than most.  Weeks after the first day of spring there was still a couple feet of ice on Lake Winnipesuakee and it just didn't seem like they would ever call the "ice out".  Lakes Region residents and tourists anxiously wait for the ice out because it's our unofficial way of realizing winter is over and the spring season has begun.

Legend of Winnipesaukee

Lot of people call New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee - "Boston's Bathtub", but do we really know the origin of the name Winnipesaukee?  The legend of Winnipesaukee or often called the legend of Chief Wonaton is not unlike Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet with our own Native American twist.  From this legend it is said that is how Winnipesaukee got it's name
