I'm working on that. I am trying locate someone to contract to do it. Just looking at worse case scenario.

Hi John...once again, more than happy to give a hand. Lakevue Marina, where I dock, has a crane and a giant Cat forklift, Tony the owner, uses to remove the floating docks every winter ( he owns them, so they are always on the property). May even be able to provide a transient dock to use while you dis-assemble the bridge. We're in Marblehead, east of Port Clinton just on the other side of the Catawba Island peninsula. Give him a call, he may be able to help you. Their number is 419-798-5221

Thank you Jim. I may check with them also.
The haul-out and fly-bridge removal is tentatively planned to be done at Catawba Landing Marina. The trucker is close to this facility and has worked with them a lot in the past. The only issue I have with this location is they may prefer to hoist the fly-bridge with their travel lift while the boat is in the well. I'm not fond of that idea but will be speaking with them more.

I am still working on the fly-bridge re-install details at the Ohio River unloading point. The trucker will wait for me to install fly-bridge and then launch the boat at the ramp that is a mile from my dock. I've spoke with one individual that has a large forklift and is going to quote me to bring it over and move the fly-bridge into place. I think I don't want to move the fly-bridge by hand.
