Of course, there will be many hours to get it functioning.

  1. Hi Den.
    Great as always. 1 question... what was the actual(real) time of the assembly on your video? Timing appears to be everything... had it gone up last weekend, would it have made it through the Wednesday storm?

  2. In the Hillside cam view, it was great to watch the Paul Tregurtha leave and the Great Lakes Trader arrive in speeded-up motion as the work was going on. Also in the background, the vehicles going back and forth on Minnesota Point looked like they were racing. Kudos to those workers who can work up high and in the wind, especially the guy who went up out of the relative safety of the crane's box into the ball to disconnect the hook from the crane that had lifted the top into place, whew!
