Adesso began her adventure with us in Rhode Island, Massachusets. We chose to truck her to the Pacific Northwest which had its challenges. At 36,0000 lbs dry weight ( no fuel or water – she was full of fuel ) and a mast that was 67 ft coupled with a 12’8 height restriction we were close to the max that could be transported this way. Everything on the deck had to be stripped down to make our height restriction and the route across the US was not direct because of load length. Every state has different rules of the road we discovered. Needless to say after a few weeks of delay Adesso arrived in Anacortes!
I had two friends Owen and Jean-guy volunteer to help put the boat together and bring her into Canada. Owen had to head back to Canada because of a sickness but left his van which was an invaluable time saver. This meant Jean-guy and I did the rest of the heavy lifting. What a job!!! Everything was new to us, it was like putting a jigsaw puzzle back together with out a plan. Thankfully we had great help in Rhode Island pulling the boat apart and the notes that came with the boat resulted in very few nuts and bolts left over at the end!
