The Nordhavn 86 being lifted

A long day on the boat yesterday with an Atlas technician (Fred Link) and a Nordhavn technician (Justin Jensen). They were trying to get my Atlas (international power supply) going, so that I can connect to shore power. When I spoke to them last, at about 8pm, they were grabbing something to eat, but made the comment that they’d be studying the plans until 3am, and on the boat first thing this morning. I overheard Fred canceling his flights home. Justin also said he was here until we solve the issue. Apparently the Atlas’ are normally extremely reliable, and a failure such as mine is quite rare. They were both confident they’ll solve it today. I hope they do, because I’m leaving the country for ten days for Christmas and need to get connected to shore power before I can go.

On a different topic: There has been a lot of discussion in the Comments section of this website about lifting boats. I posted some pictures of the first Nordhavn 86 being lifted off a freighter which are somewhat interesting. The N86 weighs 200 tons, and they had to lift it using two 100 ton lifts. All went fine, but I heard there were some very nervous people watching (including the lift operators!) The Nordhavn tech (Justin) who is here was talking to me about the 86. He was blown away by it. He said the main salon was huge, and that on his first tour of the boat he couldn’t find the engine room. He said the construction quality is absolutely incredible. I hope I get to see it someday!
