So as i’ve mentioned before we have many awesome neighbors in this small mountain community. With that being said it’s no surprise that one simple comment of ” yea I don’t know how the hell i’m gonna get that engine in the boat” while taking to a friend that stopped by, brought a massive boom truck to the property. In less than an hour our 630 pound diesel was plucked up and gently set inside the boat as if it were made of styrofoam. People are like that up snowden. Kind, generous, and more often than not they own heavy machinery! Thanks guy’s we would have had a hell of a time with it ourselves!
So I was envisioning a regular sized truck with a little boom crane on it…. Not so much!
The engine was like a a pebble to this thing.
A couple slices with a knife… Sun roof! How quaint…
Now back to business.
and she’s in!! Just blocked in place for now. I’ll make permanent mounts later.
Well another monumental task completed! Only a few odds and ends and we’ll start on bottom planking! We’re getting there!
Thats all for now.
