@HangOutdoors Good luck with that mess. I've found Amazon purchases to be EXTREMELY polarizing. It's either the easiest thing I've ever returned, or it's a 14 week fight to the death for $6 resolution.

@swatski What's happening with that backhoe there? New patio? Second pool? Your house already looks like something from the lifestyles of the rich and famous, what more can you add?
It's done!
I'll post when I get home at some point tonight.

Update. Well, this is not going well. The pool was supposed to be here this morning from Amazon. No Pool, no discussion, no Email, just some less than intelligent person on Amazon Chat lieing her ass off. No pool, no Idea, just that she can cancel the order and I can reorder, at the new price and get it next week. Now the pool is $300 more than what I paid on Amazon. Admiral is very upset, I have dirt ordered and paid for, as well as stuff for the pool and building permit pulled etc.. Can't find the pool anywhere now, except on Amazon for an inflated price. They say there is an issue and it is not in, yet someone at worked ordered one last week and had it delivered yesterday for the increased price. I am pissed!

Amazon.com: Intex 26329EH 18ft x 52in Ultra XTR Frame Pool Set, Dark Grey: Garden & Outdoor

I also mentioned that it isn't my fault and the trolling motor she bought me isn't going back.;)
Hurry! Get that motor installed!

It turned out pretty nice - new patio and a gazebo (yes, I was proven wrong for all my complaining).
Still a few finishing touches needed for the patio - a fire pit etc., furniture, lighting, but most of the heavy lifting is done so now I should be able to go fishing while they can stay and lounge!

The boat lost the battle with the pool.. maybe down the road we shall see..View attachment 148769
Very nice pool but that is a bummer.

Did the crowds on the water here in the new way of life have anything to do with it or you just wanted the pool more?

I’m gonna have to be honest and say wanted the pool more. No towing, crowds, stressing about every little scratch..

I didn't get my boat fix in, but will so next week. We've been using the heck out of this pool though!

No boating or waverunning yet here this year either but we’ve been in the pool multiple times since I opened it on April 7th, despite it not being any warmer than 72 until today (finally up to 74). The kids don’t care what temperature it is and swim as soon as they can and right up until I close the damned thing (usually early November).
