After a short ride down the I-5 from Oregon Iron Works’ (OIW) facility in Vancouver, Washington, the WET-NZ hull arrived at the Port of Toledo, Oregon on Tuesday, August 7th. A special thanks to Bill Pender and the entire OIW team for their craftsmanship and dedication to meeting an aggressive schedule. The Port staff made quick work of unloading and blocking the hull. Patrick made some minor modifications to the air supply system and welded all of the sacrificial anodes to the hull.
We received word late yesterday that the PowerPod has left the Port of Oakland after its long sea voyage from New Zealand and is expected to arrive late tonight. Tomorrow will be a big day as we unload the PowerPod and attach it to the hull.
