    Gray Marine 6-71 diesel engine. Unchanged from WWII, except that may be a "N" 4 valve head.

    Subscribed. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your new acquisitions!!!

    If I could make one suggestion: Try to find a home for the boat before moving it, and move it once. A second relocation is guaranteed to cost you a lot more time and money.

    Don't need a boat, but could buy the red trailer! Boats cost more to own than buy, they just seem to nickel and dime you to death .Would make money in Alaska with it!

    I was surprised yesterday I stopped by their shop and Jon just gave me the red trailer.

    The plan is to get it moved to the yard, where it will stay until either I do something with it or someone buys it. It will probably cost me enough the first time!

    The step deck was a package deal with the LCVP. The bridge truck was added in afterwards, all 3 for a pretty good price in my opinion. The shipping will cost a little but it will still probably be a good deal.

    Trying to lift the whole front of the boat at once didn't go so well, the pipe truck would lift the front tires off the ground with the boat not moving at all.

    So we got to work with some bottle jacks on the starboard side.

    Once it was up a bit the pipeline truck would pick up one corner at a time.

    As far as we got today:

    A few more shots of the engine which we took home today.

    We didn't do anything with the step deck or bridge truck, neither are a concern right now.

    It is interesting! Makes you wonder how it got so far inland, must have been expensive

    Well it's right next to Lake Champlain. Too bad it's not operational, it's sitting less than 1000ft from the water right now.
    Though I don't know if it got here via the water or roadway.

    Even though Lake Champlain is a fresh water lake you can reach the ocean through the St. Lawrence seaway.

    I thinks I see armor plate on that one. Gonna be a lot heavier than the wood one I pulled around. I think you figured that out.
