The starboard keel is now effectively independent of the boat, its time to get it up the drive way to the workshop, bring on the engine hoist. So far so good, i have roped on and got clear of the boat but the problem being where i released the ram on the hoist abit quick the keel effectively fell onto the legs of the hoist buckling one of the wheels.

I'm effectively trying to pull 600kg along the ground with a hoist thats now got a supermarket trolley wheel for steerage.......... Great!

After much huffing and puffing up the drive way and placing one sheet of ply in front of another i finally got it to its place of rest - outside the shop ready for work.
