Engine returns

The repaired engine from the Emerald Isle returns to Island.

The engine, covered in part by a blue tarp,is on a trailer. Note the size of the engine, taller than the white truck on the barge.

The next steps involve aligning the engines, a Coast Guard inspection and sea trials. If all goes according to plan the vessel should be up and running by July 19 or 20.
