Re: methods of recovering a morgan 25 1967

Pay the power company to come in and move the lines out of the way temporarily - it's done all the time when movers have huge loads, like houses - they take the lines down and put them back when the load has passed.

Then the crane can pick the boat up with slings and roll it upright. The whole thing should only take an hour or two.

Moving it Egyptian style works but it will be almost certain to cause damage to one extent or another.

P.S. the latest issue of GOB has a story about a restoration of that boat.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
