A caution to all on Anstruther that the water level will likely be dropped much earlier than last year, possibly in the coming weeks.
Take precautions when leaving each weekend to ensure that your boat and docks are tied up in a position such that the boat bottom and motor are not at risk of hitting the bottom of the lake should it be dropped mid-week after you have left.
This was a problem last year because it caught all of us by surprise - we had no notice that it was to be suddenly dropped and left one cottager with a boat that was damaged beyond repair, the water level dropped and the boat rubbed on a rock on the lake bottom all week during the boat owner's absence. The boat became submerged because of the fresh new hole in the hull and we all know a sunk motor is a dead motor.
Once the water level drops, we will all also be reminded how valuable long ramps are on Anstruther - a point many of us have tried to communicate to Town Council during the dock bylaw discussions.
