After Jim cleaned and crated the engine, it was time to get it through customs. When the engine got loaded onto the ship, apparently the paperwork got lost or mixed up and the captain almost did not accept it. I guess it took a few hours of work and a number of calls including getting the harbor captain out of bed, but the paperwork was verified and the engine was finally on its way!

It was ready then for pickup on Nov. 24th. The picture below is of the docks and the engine and the limestone crusher in their container prior to removal. The second photo is of my dad, Marshal, standing next to his, "Oh my God, what did I get myself into."
