Well I have not posted in a while. Been busy moving out my old gas tank and moving in a new tank. This one is cement and weighs 9 tons empty. You can see the shed in the background with the new doors installed. I hope to have the siding on in the next few weeks ( if only the new pump arrives and I can get that installed)

You can also see the old white tank that I had to reposition and set up next to my new shop . I am the only supplier of gas in the village so I cannot be without gas. This tank will be scrapped as soon as the new one is on line. All this has to be moved with no cranes or loaders. Just jacks rollers and tackle. It took us 2 full days to move the new tank off tha main bridge , position it, jack it up and remove the sled, and then jack it down on the new cement pad.

Thanks for updating us with the progress of your workshop and the hauling the giant concrete gas tank which I’ve been following since over a month ago. Looks like the tank is reluctant to give way for the new one…LOL.
I hope things would be ok and you may start making sawdust in the new workshop.
Take care and work safe.

I’m amazed every time I see what is going on here. When you started this, I said to myself “Self, that man is crazy. Why would anyone try that on dry land let alone over the water – and in the wilderness?!!!”

I think I’m beginning to understand more as the awe has receded just a little bit. To accomplish this thing is going to be something only you and those that have done a similar work can appreciate. I hope it stands for centuries to come.
