    Rip-rap

    I took advantage of the warm weather and low lake level to start putting 12 tons of rip-rap along the shoreline today. This stuff is a pain to work with, but my 3032E does the trick.

    I love rip-rap for applications like yours. We used a lot of it when I worked for the state - big stuff! It was pretty neat to watch our Gradall operator catch the pieces that wanted to take off when dumping on a hill.

    Stuff that we put in 25 years ago is still there even after lots of floods.

    Yes. It's actually a mesh sotospeak. It's used to protect those very expensive tires when used around very harsh/abrasive materials.

    Thanks Jamie! I just had it resurveyed. My neighbor pulled the pins up so he could do whatever he wanted. He actually pulled them back up. I think it's all straight now. The surveyor politely explained how he broke the law because he pulled them up. So now I have a sourpuss neighbor. He'll get over it though.q

    Over time, seawalls are being replaced by rip rap here although a little bigger stone. One thing quickly became apparent was that with either a seawall or riprap you had to tie the end back into the bank where it stopped.

    I doubt Lake Anna has enough wave action to cause the same issue so you may be ok. I would guess that most of your issues are from boat wakes.

    By the way, are you on the warm or cold side of the lake?
