Default New Paddlewheel Shaft On The AQ

The new shaft arrived just this morning with a fresh coat of paint, 39,000 pounds of welded steel. The rain held off just long enough to set it in the bearings. We have a couple of soggy days ahead of us but when the weather breaks on Wednesday it will be two shifts until assembly is done. We are shooting for a builder’s trial with USCG on the 19th. Wish us luck!
