Repositioning the Gypsy pieces
The hulls had to be repositioned to a relatively flat surface for the final assembly of the pieces.. I had also liaised with the "future" crane driver so that the boat once completed can be craned out of the house. There were some construction workers just across my house and I managed to talk to their boss for the use of some muscles to lift the hulls and the cuddy to its new position.6 workers came and with a lot of shouting and cheering we managed to move the two hulls and the cuddy (the cuddy was blocking the way initially)
Some smart guys says we needed straps to lift the hulls but we substituted that with some ropes and a rubber hose.
With the two hulls in position we took the aft beam and position it right at the back of the hulls.
The cuddy was then brought in to its new position. The reason why I had to place the cuddy here is that I have no maneuvering room once the beams are attached to the hulls. At this position I think I can use rollers to roll it forward and aft when needed to.
I now have an empty nest! This boat shed id vacant! It is just like having grown out kids moving out of the house!. Next....preparing for the assembly!
I have alway been able to do things that I enjoy doing and have a good life. Although I was brought up in the city of Kuala Lumpur but at heart I have always been a hill billy country boy.In my school days I was a member of the 10 KL (Air Scout) Troop.From air scouting I learned to like aircraft and ended up serving in the Royal Malaysian Air Force as a pilot. Later when I completed my service I became a commercial helicopter pilot and is still enjoying the job
Enjoying the Great Outdoors and living a life in harmony with nature has always been my style of living. I always tell my friends that it does not require a lot of money to have a good life but you must KNOW HOW to have a good life.
