This is the week we FINALLY launch the Eroica into the water after a huge preseason push!
But before we can do that, we have some big tasks to complete. We have to get our brand new commercial dive compressor functional, make some big improvements to the sluice box, and deal with a steering emergency.
And what’s it going to look like when we launch the boat? After completely rebuilding the Eroica’s hull and making it almost twice as big, we’re making educated guesses to adjust the equipment now that the deck is 2 feet higher out of the water.
If we guess wrong it could be a trip back to the shop for more work and tens of thousands of dollars of lost mining time.
