Moving it from a wooded shoreline area in Wilmington, Vermont to Lake Winnipesaukee will definitely be a big challenge.

At 18' wide, it is 9.5' wider than the maximum standard width of 8.5' for travel on the Vermont and New Hampshire roads. The length of 53' is the exact same length as a 53' flat bed trailer capable of hauling about 25-ton. Its' height could require the artificial smoke stacks to be removed.

Probably, best to get in Gilford to get the needed state permits and make the move happen at 5:30-am on a sunny Sunday morning.

At $9500 or less, seems like a real fixer-upper, steal of a deal ..... especially if the two Volvo diesel engines are still running or easily made to run.

Fixing it up could be a wonderful winter, fixer-upper project, for The Dive at the West Alton Marina, this winter!

Introducing The Dive #2 ...... informally named the #2. ...

With two pontoons and two diesel inboards, the #2 could probably beat the pants off the 22'x62' barge powered with two Evinrude 2-stroke outboards that putt putt along at 4-mph. How fast could the #2 be expected to move ...... maybe 16-mph ..... or four times as fast ..... or, maybe 12-mph .... or three times as fast?
Down & out, livn that Walmart side of the lake!
