AnTiki is lifted out of the water
The pictures below show how to lift a raft out of the water.
Sounds easy doesn’t it? Well, let me tell you AnTiki weighs nigh on 10 tons and I remember only too well the long day we spent in Valle Gran Rey manouvering her into the water from where we built her.
It took two diggers all day, and lots of arm waving, lots of worrying.
The guys at St Maarten Shipyard are a tower of strength. They have come to the rescue of Anthony in his hour of need and demonstrated how easy it is to lift ANY vessel when you’ve got the right bit of kit. The SEALIFT !
