Default Video of New and Improved Lock Chamber

I had some issues with the lock chamber starting to loose water so I build a replacement using 1/2" PVC. Here is one of my recent videos of the tow boat entering at the top of the lock chamber.

If I ever make my wife's pond bigger this is what would happen. I would need a tug and some coal barges.

No problem Jim. I unhooked my truck got it out then, took the skid steer put a ball on the forks, picked up the trailer pulled sideways and pulled it through the posts diagonally on the building and re hooked the truck.
I didn't know you weren't coming back on Sunday. You really didn't miss anything. Way too much mud this time but we were the only ones with dry dirt. I even had dust coming off my bucket while dumping.

I didn't either, until I got out of bed Sunday. I had a really nice WX window to get home and decided to go. Jim

New pond Tour video for 2017. I still have a plan to motorize the gates with some of my diy actuators.

That's an awesome pond!

Makes me miss my koi pond, but i know i'd spend more time cleaning the filters than i ever would playing.

Very cool! You just need a bigger pond at the top and bottom, so you can have a vessel or two waiting to lock-through!
