This past weekend while my family was in town I decided it would be a good time to try and move it. This thing is not light aluminum, it is heavy gauge sheet metal so it was going to be a tough move. My dad brought his tractor out for the job. We hooked it up with a big chain and lifted it a little with the front end loader and tried to start dragging it but the tractor would not budge it. But we weren't giving up so we hooked up my truck to the tractor which was hooked to the boat and used both to pull it. Even then, my truck tires were just spinning until I put it in 4 wheel drive and it finally started to budge. It was slow going and we almost flipped the tractor a couple times but we finally got it to it's new location....at the end of the orchard inside the yard fence. It will still be a while before I have a chance to alter it and make it into a playhouse but at least it is moved. I have lots of crazy ideas for turning it into a playhouse. It is either going to turn out awesome or terrible. But I have a feeling we will have the only party barge playhouse maybe in the whole world.
