Displacement Placement

Updated: Apr 20, 2018

We're back from our "finished products" detour to look projects we're tracking at the Summit Sales & Equipment fab shop, because there have been literally big developments on them.

First up, the one that's been the star of our show most of the way, Ms. Santa Trai. Oh, hey there, beautiful.

I probably don't need to explain what's new there, but they're conveniently large and orange in color if you can't find them. And unlike last time, when I prematurely wrote an entire post about displacement tanks only to see them disappear the next time, they're actually pretty well fastened this time.

Honestly though, there isn't a ton new to report here. Beyond the tanks, of course. Not to downplay that one, since it's the biggest development we've had, in size terms at least. It's up there in symbolic terms too. Here are a couple more photos anyway, just because.

Wait, are those more tanks?

Yep, they sure are. These happen to reside on one of the other things we've been watching, WFS-441 (suggestions for a catchier name welcome). Unlike those on Santa Trai, these are decidedly being in place by a crane and some wood, so we'll temper our enthusiasm for the time being.

Regardless, it's been fun to see how quickly things have sort of come together on this one. We dropped an engine on the deck, the bones of the platform are pretty much in place, and that smaller mixing tank definitely isn't going anywhere.

Seriously, it was only a couple weeks ago that this thing was basically an empty deck, save for some of the platform. There's a post about it dated February 8th if you don't believe me. Can't wait to see where we go next.

Closest to the door: woof.

Who doesn't love bulldogs, even ones that are hood ornaments?
