   Bob Coes sends us this update showing the placement of the deck houses on the main deck on September 17/08. Gary Allport, Operations Manager at Logistec West Side Terminal, was kind enough to offer the services of their men and equipment. Equipment operators Wayne Brown and Mike Cochrane lifted the deck houses into position with one of Forterm's heavy duty forklifts. Special thanks to Logistec for helping us out. The following photos describe the overall loading process.

Due to height restrictions in the lifting process the stanchions were left off so as to allow for the space needed to carry out the lift.
