Winter Ice Buildup in Lakes and Ponds Can Cause a Host of Problems for Boats and Docks, as Well as for Fish and Wildlife

SANTA MARIA, Calif. -- The change of seasons no longer means having to perform labor intensive tasks to safeguard your boat, dock and summer lake equipment from the damage that can occur from frigid, freezing water conditions. This winter use a Deicer in your lake or pond to prevent costly damage, says Discount Pumps.

If you live in a frigid climate, you know your lake or pond is subject to icy conditions. This can make proper care of your dock or shoreline a challenge. If your dock is permanent or you have shoreline structures that have to be protected each year, a Deicer is a must to keep ice from forming around your property.

Deicers are used by marinas, hydropower facilities, municipalities, and pond owners.

Deicer products are designed to keep a large area of the pond or lake, free from ice build-up, even under extreme winter weather conditions. A Deicer will keep an area of water from forming ice wherever the Deicer is placed in the water. They prevent sheets of ice from enveloping the structures left in the water for the winter. Damage occurs when ice is allowed to form causing undue pressure on the item the ice has surrounded. When the ice moves that pressure damages whatever property it has attached to.

The Deicer operates by bringing warmer water up from the bottom of your lake or pond and sending it out (50-foot diameter minimum) in a continuous agitated movement. This enables the water around your dock, boat and shoreline to stay ice-free.

Other benefits of using a dock Deicer are aeration for fish and aquatic life, prevention of debris from settling near your dock, and keeps pond water open that attract birds for hunting.

How does this all work?

Dock Deicer: Provides the added plus of in-water boat storage as a possibility during harsh winters. A dock mount deicer mounts quickly and easily to almost any type of dock using a stainless steel dock plate, pipe and yoke assembly that suspends the Deicer under the surface of the water. This mount allows for easy adjustment to accommodate different water levels.

Slinger Deicer: Using nylon rope to secure, the Slinger Deicer can be suspended from a boat, pilings or dock. It easily adjusts to compensate for varying levels of the pond. This is best for use in hard-to-reach areas and rapidly changing weather conditions. An economical solution to prevent ice formation in large marinas and dock areas.

Floating Deicer: Floating Deicer is designed to keep a large area of the pond open in the winter. The deicer is connected to a float approximately 2 feet below the pond's surface. Also the Floating Deicer can adjust for variations in water levels.

Free Standing Deicer: A free standing post for a Deicer without a dock! Now you can place your Deicer in those hard to reach spots, no dock required.

Adding an oscillator: A fully programmable oscillator attachment helps keep larger areas free from ice build-up without the need to purchase a second deicer. Pre-programmed to rotate in 20-degree increments every 20 minutes, an oscillator turns the deicer on its mounting. You can set it for any radius you need, then plug it in, that's it.

The owner of Discount Pumps stated "We offer several sized Deicers for your pond's needs with installation guidelines. To have peace of mind this winter, consider a Deicer to prevent structural ice damage and keep your pond waters free and clear of ice."

Lake Home and Cabin Buyers: What to Look For at The Water’s Edge

LONG LAKE, Minn. -- Whether you call it a lake home, cabin, cottage or camp, buyers are naturally drawn to the water's edge when looking at lakeshore properties. The wide variety of shoreline conditions gives buyers a lot to consider before they write a purchase agreement, says John Gehring, owner of Solo Dock, a tip-in dock manufacturer in Long Lake, Minnesota.

Some buyers seek a tranquil retreat with a spectacular view. Others want a shoreline suited to an active watersports lifestyle. One important consideration is the set of local ordinances governing each lake. Some municipalities have enacted no-wake or quiet hours rules that allow boat motors to only run at idle from 5:00 pm to 10:00 am, for example.

Next, consider the natural environment at the water's edge.

"The shoreline transition to the water, the depth of the water, and lake bottom conditions all factor into enjoyable use of the lake or river," says John Gehring, owner of Solo Dock, a tip-in dock manufacturer in Long Lake, Minnesota. "Thoughtful selection of a dock or pier will take advantage of the desirable conditions and overcome any challenging aspects of the lakeshore."

A relatively level shoreline allows for easy access to the water and the dock. Lakeshore owners can simply anchor a starter bracket at the water's edge and install the dock. On a shoreline with a hill, the dock can be installed on the beach, at the water's edge, or attached to a new or existing stairway. In either case, Gehring says dock selection decisions need to factor in ease of transporting to a safe and secure location for storage, often at the top of the hill or stairs. Docks that break down into sections as small as six feet long allow one person to install and remove the dock by themselves.

Lakeshore buyers should consider that steep banks may also require stabilization, landscaping and stairs to prevent the bank from sliding into the lake. However, these improvements also preserve the owner's investment, beautifies the property and enhances the view from up top.

Gehring also advises prospective buyers to get water measurements every six feet from shore until the water is at least four-to-six feet deep. Boats typically need a minimum of three feet of water to float if tied to the dock, and four or more feet of water if kept on a lift. Water depth measurements will tell you how many feet of dock you will need to purchase, and how long the pipes need to be for each dock section when you order a dock.

"Getting water depth measurements helps prospective lakeshore owners formulate a plan and a budget for a dock, a boat and maybe a boat lift," says Gehring. "I occasionally talk to new lakeshore owners that didn't get water depth measurements, and when spring arrived they discovered they need 100 or 200 feet of dock, which they didn't budget for. Fortunately, Solo Dock offers a 0 percent financing option to help customers get the dock they need to enjoy the summer on the lake."

Gehring suggests buyers ask if the DNR or lake association regulates the water depth in the lake or river with a dam, and how much the water level fluctuates during the summer. It's an advantage to have a dock that can be installed without getting into the water, especially when the water is high and cold in spring. If getting help to install a dock early in spring and remove it late in fall is in question, consider a dock that one person can install, level and remove to take advantage of the early sunny spring days and the last warm days of fall.

Gehring also suggests finding out what the lake bottom consists of. Is the lake bottom mucky? If so, how deep is the muck? Often there is a few inches to a foot of muck on top of a firm bottom like sand, gravel or clay. This is the result of decayed leaves, etc. accumulating on the lake bottom over many years, especially in lakeshore that hasn't seen active use. Large footpads (12-inch diameter, for example) give dock posts stable support in firm or soft lake bottoms. A removal winch tripod tool allows one person to pull the dock out of sand, silt or muck without getting into the water.

Also, prospective buyers should determine if they will need to purchase flood insurance. If you will have a mortgage on the property and the building is classified as being in a flood plain, your lender will require you to purchase flood insurance. FEMA recently reclassified property that previously didn't require flood insurance.

Finally, Gehring advises prospective buyers to include a dock or boat lift that's on the property in the purchase agreement if it might fit their needs. But if the dock is old, wooden, heavy, etc., buyers should specify that the seller remove and dispose of the dock prior to closing, and start their search for a dock they will enjoy for decades to come.

About Solo Dock:
Solo Dock manufactures and sells an aluminum "Tip-In Dock" that one person can install, level and remove without getting into the water. The company is headquartered in the city of Long Lake, Minnesota, in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. John Gehring is the owner of Solo Dock, and he and his family have lived on Lake Minnetonka for 25 years. In that time he has helped customers, friends and neighbors install many styles of docks on many different types of lakeshore, giving him the experience to advise customers and ship docks across the U.S. and Canada.

Batteries Shack Now Metro Detroit’s Only Authorized Dealer for Deka and Trojan USA Batteries

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. -- Ask many boating enthusiasts which deep cycle batteries they prefer for their crafts, and they'll name one of two brands: Deka, or Trojan USA, says Batteries Shack. They're top-of-the-line batteries made in the USA; Deka through a company called East Penn Manufacturing. Both are known for having longer life spans and higher power outputs than competing brands.

The boaters are especially enthusiastic about Trojan USA, as they trust these batteries to get them home after trolling for four or five hours.

In 2008 a fisherman who ended up stranded on the Detroit River was able to get home after his motor shut down because his Trojan Battery had enough power to get the job done. The authorities even asked him what brand he had, and credited his return wholly to his Trojan battery.

But batteries from these brands aren't always so easy to come by. They're difficult to find online. Many big box stores won't carry them, as they can make more money by using private labeling on batteries which come in from overseas. Some big box stores won't sell them at all: Meijer just discontinued their entire line of car, boat, and RV batteries.

For one thing, selling great batteries can be tough. A good Deka or Trojan USA battery can last as long as 7 years. That's a long time to wait for a customer's return. Thus, many battery stores don't want to sell them either. They often prefer to white label batteries too, and typically sell batteries which won't last any longer than three years.

In other states, some enthusiasts have to drive 50 miles or more to get a Deka battery.

Metro Detroit's luckier. Batteries Shack in Sterling Heights is an authorized dealer for both brands. And their Mound Road location just off M59 makes them easy to reach. And the owner, Anas Tela, is enthusiastic about both brands. "It really is tough to get a better battery than a Deka or a Trojan USA."

Even if you have found one of these batteries online there are advantages to purchasing them in person.

"We help you get the old battery out of your boat, RV, or golf cart safely and will install the new one for you. We're also happy to handle charging your battery for you. And if you have questions, we're right here to answer them for you, face-to-face," Tela notes.

There's another advantage to going to Batteries Shack: they guarantee all their batteries are manufactured and dated in the same year. They sell them fully charged, which means you'll know you're getting a solid performer at a low price.

Black History Month: Climate Leadership Takes Root February 22-23, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Delivering the inaugural Black History Month welcome remarks, Bay Ecotarium and Smithsonian Affiliated Aquarium of the Bay President and CEO, George Jacob shared his vision for the $260 million Climate Literacy and Ocean Conservation Living Museum in the making in San Francisco.

Twin iridescent orbs inspired by fish scales, ohlone shell mounds and ocean geometry rise above rippling waves of the San Francisco anchored with a third parabolic cortex that serves as an artificial intelligence robotic pod fostering dynamic climate content.

"Set in three acres of 'zone green' this unique living science museum aims to immerse, move hearts and minds to precipitate continues action to transform lives and induce a lifestyle change towards symbiotic sustainability with nature," said Jacob, the visionary at the helm of this ambitious landmark world class project.

What makes this narrative unique is that it celebrates the indigenous perspectives of environmental stewardship by over 90 native American tribes include the ohlone, the chumash, the miwok, the yokutz et al, who have been stewards of the land for centuries.

With many cities including Oakland, Berkeley and San Francisco declaring Climate Emergencies, never has the momentum been greater to establish a climate and ocean conservation museum. Even as environmental justice and conversations seeking transcendence from marginalized to mainstream engagement, took center stage as author Carl Anthony shared through his powerful new book the need of the hour resonated with the hundreds of attendees who flocked the Aquarium of the Bay to celebrate.

"Our partnership and SANKOFA DAYS at The BAY establish our shared commitment to the principles that stand at the core of this movement for environmental justice and sustainability embodied in the words of Dr. King, 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly,'" says Executive Director of The NorCalMLK Foundation, Aaron Grizzell.

"In our griot tradition, we seek to construct a new narrative that will resound, and raise mindfulness and collective consciousness of our environmental legacy... a respect, care, and love for our mother Earth; as well as, awaken and ignite our youth to take up the banner for environmental justice and climate change action to secure the future for coming generations," says, Board Member Angelique Tompkins.

Our mission is enabling conversations on climate resilience and ocean conservation globally, while inspiring actionable change locally by protection and preservation of the San Francisco Bay and its ecosystems, from Sierra to the Sea(TM).

Documentary on Plight of Ground Fishermen to be Screened in Maine Towns

KITTERY, Maine -- aine residents will have an opportunity soon to witness the devastating impacts of federal regulations on the lives of New England ground fishermen, as seen through the eyes of a documentary filmmaker with a long record of acclaimed work. David Wittkower's "Dead in the Water" will be shown at four Maine community theaters in April.

It will be shown at Kittery, Star Theater, Waterville's Railroad Square, Boothbay Harbor's The Harbor Theater and Belfast's The Colonial Theater. The 7 p.m. screenings will be followed by a question period and panel discussion featuring local, New England commercial fishermen and the film makers.

Dates and Times (Schedule):
* Kittery Community Center - 04/06/18 - 120 Rogers Road, Kittery, ME 03904.
* Railroad Square Theater - 04/08/18 - 17 Railroad Square, Waterville, ME 04901.
* Harbor Theater - 04/09/18 - 185 Townsend Ave, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538.
* The Colonial Theater - 04/10/18 - 163 High Street, Belfast, ME 04915.

* At each screening, a Q&A will follow immediately after the film, with the filmmaker and fishermen.

The film was shot in New England coastal towns. It features scenes and interviews with area fishermen, their spouses and other family members, advocates for fishermen, elected officials, and community activists.

"This film opens the doors for the world to see how difficult and dangerous the life of a fisherman is," said John Bell, a former mayor of Gloucester, Massachusetts who advised Wittkower during the project. "On top of that, the impact of misguided federal regulations on fishermen has never been presented as powerfully as it is in 'Dead in the Water.' This film packs a real punch. It stays with you long after you've seen it."

On March 18, 2018, "Dead in the Water" received an award for Excellence in Cinematography for a Documentary at the Depth of Field International Film Festival competition. The film also features Grammy Award winning singer, Paula Cole.

Wittkower said he's hoping now that the film will show the audience what is really happening in this very complicated issue. "What we would like to see out of all this is to have people support commercial fishermen. I'd like to see people demand more fish is caught off of U.S. waters than to get it from Vietnam, Norway and New Zealand, and don't eat Tilapia."

Tickets to the April screenings are available by contacting the theaters or at their doors.
