The tank has been completed and waiting at Reef Savvy for a number of months now, and the stand is finally ready. Chad Newman offered to take a day off and drive me down to Miami, and Al Schreiber came along for the ride. It was a good thing we had the help loading the tank at the Miami end. We had one end of the tank on a lift and it took everything all four of us could do to raise one end of the tank level with the pickup bed.
This 7 foot monster weighs 700 lbs. (The tank, not Felix)
We backed up to the front door at home, which shortened the distance for the carry significantly. We used a sheet of plywood and a sheet of 2″ foam to cushion the ride. Chad’s big duelie truck was the perfect ride for the trip (except for the amount of diesel we burned).
A real big thanks to the moving crew- Al Schreiber, Michael Harnett, James Goodyear, Iggy Galarza, Chad Newman, Ed Newman, David Hill, Rick Loewen (me), and Skippy Dooling.
