(Retrospective post for 9th February)
We had arranged that we would arrive at Brinklow Boat Services ready to see our "new" engine delivered whilst we were still there, so that all parties were happy with all the arrangements.
Our seller was slightly delayed, but was soon with us with the engine securely strapped to a suitable trailer.
Brinklow generally use their fork lift to move such items around, and the engine was fairly quickly unloaded and transferred to a rather more substantial pallet, in order that it could be temporarily moved into one of the buildings there. Although not shown here, the fork lift is too tall to enter that building, so the final move involved a low trolley designed to move pallets, and which could lift it the necessary amount off the ground.
Work would not commence absolutely immediately, but Brinklow promised us it would within a week or two.
