Crane lifting a boat out of the water
Eight days ago marked the end of the boating season for many boaters in Thornbury on Georgian Bay. Here you see a crane that had just hoisted this boat out of the harbour and was slowing swinging it over over two other boats to its stand where it will stay for the winter.
Straps that hold the boat
When the boat was still in the water, these straps were slowly positioned under the boat.
Moving to over the boat stand
The boats owners and a couple of workers are watching. If you look carefully, you can see that one of the the workers in brown has one end of a rope and is guiding the bow of the boat into position before it's lowered onto the stand.
Setting the boat into its stand
Now that the boat is on its stand, the owners can check out the boat's hull to see if it needs work before next spring when it will be hoisted up and over and back into the water.
