After several weeks of planning, the bridge parts were shipped today from Gorham, NH, and arrived in Sheepscot to be unloaded a little after 1. Lee Corrigan of Lee T. Corrigan LLC of Gorham had a crew available to load when NC Hunt arrived, and due to the time it took I would say it went like clock work. A major step is now behind us.

Kudos to Steve Z.  He was a master at using the forklift to unload the NC Hunt trucks.  As you can see, the 48' trusses were especially precarious. It all went like clockwork at this end as well.

Why does this look like one of those "some assembly required" purchases?   ;)

Did I see "Campbell" on one of the trucks?  That's going to take one huuge bottle of Zap a gap.   :P

And I'd say the pic of Steve forklift-moving that balanced, heavy,  truss chord is a winner. He's good!
Used to run a bedraggled, WWII Clark forklift at 2926 rebuild with a few well-meaning guys directing me simultaneously, till I told all but one to SHUT UP!
