This morning at 8.30am we finished the job. The Onan is gone. Local mechanic Graeme Eaton arrived with a chain hoist and simple scaffold arrangement. It lifted straight out, then we slid it down on to the dock using our timber barge board plank.
AME picked it up at 2.00pm and it disappeared on the back of a motorcycle sidecar. Good riddance. If you type Onan into the search field on this page you'll see why no tears were shed. We promise not to mention it again.
Eventually we'll talk about the unit that will replace it, but that's another story.
