After years of planning and saving and working, we finally slipped the COLUMBIA III into her new home!!!!!!!
Two days ago after our delay with the shipyard haulout, we were eager to get back to work. The fabric was stretched out . . .
. . . the ends were laced tight . . .
. . . the masts were removed for future hinging . . .
. . . and lowered onto a workfloat for modification and overhaul . . .
. .. and then we gently pulled her into place!
Then it was time for photos. As I said to Tavish, "This has been an insanely big project for our small team."
I don't usually put in a plug for another company, but Coverstar Structures Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. certainly provided detailed and consistent design and support for me and their product and service has exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Dale in Engineering and Raymond in Sales!!
