Feeling the cool breeze off the water is something we all enjoy and when Mike Norris purchased his houseboat in the summer of 2010 he thought life couldn’t get much better. As he started to explore the lake more often, parking the boat onto shore became a normal process for him and his family.
“We knew our grandchildren loved the outdoors, but we didn’t really take into account all the times they would be getting on and off the boat to walk the shoreline,” says Norris. “We quickly realized this was going to be a problem!”
It wasn’t the four-foot drop from the boat to the shore his grandchildren had trouble with, but once they would get back aboard the mud was just too much for the grandpa to handle. Having a background as a custom design/fabrication as his profession, he knew he could solve this problem. Turns out a portable folding walkway was the solution to his problem.
“With a design that was easy for me to deploy to shore, I could place the walkway in such a way so the grandchildren could easily walk on and off the boat without stepping in the mud,” explains Norris. “Grandma and Grandpa are much happier there isn’t a trail of mud to clean up.”
