Only one week after Detroit Lake had its official April 26 ice-out, the marina that just screams summer is in.

Since 2002, J&K Marine has been sending crews of men to brave the frigid waters that just days before had ice.


Diving underneath lifts with cables to winch up sections of the 300 foot long, 300 foot wide marina and its 102 slips has always been physically tasking for these crews.

Until now.
