Seakeeper install begins

On Friday of last week the real work began on the install of our Seakeeper.  The Seakeeper is a gyroscopic stabilizer.  Basically, it’s a large gyroscope that spins a 900 pound weight at 10,000 RPMs and should stop 90+% of the rocking in the boat.

Right now the stabilizer is sitting in the crate it has been in since it arrived at Marine Services about three weeks ago.  On Friday Tony began moving the shore power transformers that are currently located where the Seakeeper is going to be located.  Up next will be cutting out the formica that is currently there and making room for the bracket to which the Seakeeper will be mounted.
