Construction complete!

Well we're on our way to installing the 10+ platforms in Great Bay Blvd. WMA from a donation by Exelon Corp. (Oyster Creek Generating Station in Forked River) and from my Facebook pledge. In all, 14 platforms were built on Saturday, the 20th. I had over 10 friends show up to brave the cold cloudy day to help build these. Overall the construction went like a breeze, besides the tiny compressors we had to operate the air ratchet, so we ditched that for good old fashioned hand tools.

We saved lumber to build one platform where we taped the construction from start to finish. I'm in the process of editing the video and should have it done before the weekend. I just like to thank Greg M. for being the camera man! Stay tuned for the video!

We plan on installing these platforms early this winter, probably in January. I believe that we could get all up in one day, that is if I tranport each one to the exact location where we are going to install it. We will also be taking video of the actual installation as a tutorial for future use by organizations, other states, and the general public.

I just want to thank all my friends who showed up to help out! THANKS!

-Ben

Hopefully that video comes out OK. Building these platforms was a blast!
