Rondout Woodworking volunteered his equipment and know-how. As soon as we sketched out a plan, we loaded the old supply barge with the bell (courtesy of the Coast Guard crane operator) plus a pair of heavy-duty winches, lengths of chain, pry bars, wood wedges and planks. SLC board members Dock Shuter and Dick Duncan rallied to the occasion despite strong winds and choppy waters. While out walking his dog, neighbor Doug Elliot took an interest and unexpectedly joined the effort. With Jim’s leadership, the assembled team used muscles and mechanical advantage to hoist the bell off the supply barge, roll it across the bridge, lever it onto wood blocks, and gently lower it down onto its concrete base. The crew worked methodically throughout the afternoon and into the twilight hours to finish the job. Anna Berkheiser prepared a short video of the project.
