    Default just remembered...

    thought i'd post a pic of the shop on the trailer i made. that's a regular z71 pulling it through the field. the shops all finished and back together now and she's back hot and heavy building church windows in it. might post some of her work sometime...does soldering lead joints count as welding?

    So how did the move go? Was there any unforeseen problems? Did you come in near budget? That was a very aggressive project, congratulations on the successful completion.

    yes sir, the move came in right at the estimate. no problems, just a lot of hard work. jack the shop up 6", block it, move to the other side, jack it up 12", block it, over and over until it was high enough to back under then let it down. lift it , move out, bring drop-deck 18 wheeler under then let it down. when it got to our place in jackson reverse the process. off the 18 wheeler onto the i-beam trailer then move it into place then off the i-beam trailer into place lots of work for one day and me and my dad--what a dad, worked for food that day. new piers and roof and deck and she's back to building windows.

    i tacked on pics of a couple of windows we installed this morning. the pics don't do them justice. beautiful windows, talented girl!

    I've been out of the boat moving business for about 15 years. The law then was nothing over 14' wide on a state highway. If we had something over that we were forced to use county roads, some of the cat and trimarrans were around 24 to 30' wide. I did here about a guy in Illinois who got a permit to move a artichoke picking machine, 24' wide on a state highway ( to lake Michigan). Farm machinery is an exception. It was really a trimarran, he keeped a tarp over it and prayed nobody wanted to have a look, he made it.

    Default over width

    of course the load had to be permitted with the DOT, being it was a total of 16'3" at the widest. they also dictated which route to take from columbus, ms to byram, ms. their designated route didn't make much sense to me, but i'm sure they had their reasons. oh well, that's a historical subject now! it can be analized raw, but i'll just be glad it's over with
