Fabulous Photos on CF

You do get some really good photos on CF, this one popped up when I logged on this morning. Can just imagine trying to get this lot through even a small town.

Looks like they got the right figure for longitudinal center of gravity on that boat.

Re: Fabulous Photos on CF

Our haul was preceded by 5 years of > 100 hour work weeks, (between my wife and I), and regular 75 mile trips along the route, chopping limbs and such. Between the trees/growth and "development", the route to a series of lakes & rivers was closing around me. (I even looked into a helicopter lift!) $$$

This led to our launching several years before completion, and required finishing up at the coast, 150 miles from our house/boatyard in the countryside of central SC.

After enough begging at the DOT... (and since it's 21+ ' was too wide, getting them to "call it a house"), followed by acquiring permits from 3 counties, hiring a crane, truck, escort service, etc... we finally made it to the SHALLOW "bass boats only" lake full of stumps & trees, (hit a submerged tree at speed), then locked down 78' to the Cooper River headwaters, for the final 75 miles to the sea.

It was definitely a "sphincter factor of 10".

Re: Fabulous Photos on CF

Mark, did you pass by Bock Marine just North of Beaufort NC on the ICW today or yesterday (my days run together)? A tri fairly similar to yours, if it wasn't you, caught my eye as it made its way North past the yard. Great looking rig..

If boats on trucks allows inclusion, this is my Dhow on the way to being launched last year in southern Yemen.

Heres the only pic I have from when my lump of scrap was delivered. Maybe in another 12 months I will take some more on the journey to splash day
