Sloop John CA

This totally cool machine was cruising Lake Kittamaqundi today in an effort to cut weeds and pick up floating trash. It's owned by CA so they probably use it on all the lakes in Columbia.

No word yet on how many bodies were found...

Gosh, I always thought those were algae mowers, able to scoop up gobs and globs of algae. Looks like I've been spreading false information. Darn.

I was under the impression that it was a giant lawn mower.

It was on Lake Elkhorn a couple of months ago. My daughter and I went paddling - the pond grass was so long, it almost got frustrating to paddle through it.

The machine, up close was bloody impressive, though.
