It’s IN!

20 Jul

The generator is finally IN! After much angst, our beautiful generator is finally where it belongs. And what a process…

With the help of a couple of the lads from the marina, and a very large forklift….

…we were able to maneuver the generator through the main door….

…into the main cabin…

…over the hole in the floor that leads to the engine room…

… and it looks like Boyd is still pretty happy…I guess we haven’t dropped the generator or ran the forklift into the boat yet…

…winched it down into the hole…

….slowly goin’ down….

…then gently lowered it onto rollers (you know, like the Egyptians used to build the pyramids)…

…than pushed and shoved….

…until it finally reached the prepared location in our engine room!

I’m so happy!
