    Huguenot is still open to skis being launched from the shore. The Alimacani boat ramp is also open.

    Looks fine, but why a wood homemade stand on such a heavy new ski? You can have a metal one made and they are not that expensive to buy. See used ones on Craigs quite a bit. Be careful with the SHO...
