This entire bay freezes every winter. Ice pushes all but the stoutest pier foundations from the lake. Most decks must be removed from their moorings or lost to the ice. This crane was motored into position to repair some of those footings. Since painting Tower Eiffel in 1988, I never met a super structure I did not like. This was no exception. In addition to the use of a cabin, I was provided a canoe to get around the lake. As long as I paid attention, I could paint from said canoe without falling into Lake Superior.
