It has been QUITE A WEEK at The Boone-Docks! Following is photo documentation of one of several BIG projects—The installation of a 43,000lb houseboat via 120-ton crane!
The developers of The Boone-Docks had a vision to create a niche resort of repurposed boats and nautical themed cabins, just outside the Cricket Creek Marina and Campground.
A tremendous amount of planning has gone into this project over the last few years. After several hurdles, changes of plan and months of coordination and preparation, it was finally moving day!
There were more preparations in store for the team once they were on-site. First, the crane was put in to position and assembled.
Next, the boat was carefully backed up into position. Everyone who was present watched the driver work his magic. Thankfully he was a professional boat mover and had nerves of steel!
The hot tub was to be removed from the top deck of the boat for use at another unit.
Once that was complete she was ready to be harnessed up.
The move was tedious, but was safely and successfully completed within about four hours!
We are super excited to see this yacht along with several other unique cabins come into the vacation rental scene near Table Rock Lake in Omaha, AR!
A HUGE THANKS to Jay Gipson Crane, Fitzco Marine Group and the bungalows team for all the hard work that went into this project! #houseboat #ayachtoffun #theboondocks #ozarks #yacht #yachtlife #vacationrentals #cabins #project #discoverbranson #tablerocklake #vrbo #airbnb #vacation #tinyhouse #boatlife
