We really wanted to get some experts to try out Flotsam Scoop 1.02, a basket with one end open for easy dumping.
And so we asked the Commodore of Lorain Sailing & Yacht Club, Fran Burik and husband, Paul, to help us test this design.
They were both suitably impressed.
Commodore Burik was determined to clean up the marina as the club was hosting the Interlake Nationals the coming weekend.
She said the scoop made light work of removing the floating trash even a large steelhead trout that was starting to fester.
With two scoops working we soon have the marina cleared of floating trash and debris. A job well done said a very thankful commodore.
Thankful to the extent that Fran asked if she might keep the scoops for the club clean-up scheduled on Saturday.
