|Brenda and Tommy Cieplik in Lund SSV, now with auto bilge pump|
In just the past few years we have installed the world's best septic system -- the EcoFlo biofilter -- that sends all our waste water through tanks of peat moss before it is released back into the ground. It is light years ahead of conventional gravel-sand systems and far exceeds all requirements.
We also have the world's best water filtration plant, sending delicious, crystal-clear water to every tap and cabin in camp. Our water treatment plant has a triple-backup system to ensure all our water not only meets health standards but far, far exceeds it. It ranks with the world's finest bottled water.
Years ago we converted our entire fleet of outboard motors to quiet, powerful-yet-excellent-trolling, 20 h.p. four-stroke Hondas, and in a special nod to our older customers, made sure all of these were electric-start. No more yanking starting ropes. You just push a button.
We also added dock-assists at every dock in camp. These uprights look something like a swim ladder and give you something to hold onto when getting in and out of the boats. They are positioned so you can use the boat seat as a step while having both hands on the uprights. They have been universally welcomed, including by younger guests.
We also have been switching our boats from the conventional Lund models to the new SSV types that have double walk-throughs and floors throughout. (Even our older boats have floors in the bows.)
This year we will add something to every boat that I suspect will be hailed by all -- automatic bilge pumps. Any time it rains the bilge pump will come on automatically and pump the boat dry. Will anybody feel nostalgic at not needing to bail the boat with the scoop any more? I didn't think so!
