Matty and Captain Jack have really bad luck when it comes to rainstorms during FishingNosara projects. Let’s check the highlights:
Loading 10 golf carts into a container with only a pickup truck and one set of ATV ramps? Freezing rain.
Building a pallet with all the gear for the Adventurer? Hot muggy rain.
Pulling the tower off of the Discoverer? Lighting storm with ample rain.
Unfortunately we didn’t get many pictures of this deal since Marcus was bolding defying logic by operating the megacrane in a lightning storm; I love the guts on a guy who says, “The radar says we gotta shut down in 10 minutes…I think we got time!”
You can tell by the rain slick on the floor that we barely made it in time. It’s too bad they don’t put forklift driving in the Olympics because Marcus would bring home the gold every time.
Captain Jack and Matty utilized the forklift to hold the tower up while they built a pallet-style support for the tower to rest on. This level platform will be the canvas upon which Craig Jr. executes his welding magic so it needs to be strong and keep the tower square.
Once the rain cleared up we used a borrowed trailer to haul this monstrosity back to our shop. We’ll be setting this aside for a while as we continue to seek out a buyer for the inboard motor and settle on just the right trailer for this boat. For now we are one step closer to getting this boat on the road!
