My aunty and uncle are boating enthusiasts. Their work was boats, their house was boats, their leisure was boats. They have spent the past few years building a catamaran in a large shed on their property, which they were renting specifically because of the shed size. Building boats was their livelihood but you could tell a lot of love and dedication had gone into their catamaran.
Three years down the track the catamaran was finally finished. The inside was luxurious. Polished wooden trim lined leather furniture and marble lined the benchtops. The entertainment system was wired throughout the boat, with speakers in every corner. They were ready to put their catamaran in the water and move in. They had built the catamaran to live on and were eager to move into their new home. They had already taken care of their property that they were renting and handed the keys back to the real estate agency.
To get onto the water my aunty and uncle arranged for Crane Truck Hire Paracombe to move their boat. I was interested to see how Tow Truck Company Eden Hills got the boat out of the shed and down the 20 kilometres to the river. I was mostly interested in how the men from Towing Companies Kangaroo Flat got the catamaran off the crane truck and into the river. If the boat is uneven in anyway when they lower it onto the water the boat could sink.
It was a tense time watching the boat being unloaded. Emotions were high and we all just wanted it to be done. When the final thumbs up was given, the boat was lowered onto the water and applause exploded down the river as we celebrated my uncle and aunties great achievement.
