awesome lifting machine

Hi Gang,
We just finished 1 month of scraping and painting getting ready for a season Heli Skiing.
The boat is 110ft long and is registrated at 208Tonnes.
I just found the idea that a wheeled machine could lift and move the Big Boat with such ease to be awesome.

Sorry no skiing pictures but if you get a chance to see or rent the DVD
put out by Matchstick Production ( they used the big boat for a " base camp")
extreme skiing.
I don't get very far above sea level when running the boat . Some time a little below

Matchstick has a great group of people-- athletes and photographers
It was great seeing the videos(helmet cams) that they would show everynight
