It was a day of brute force and manpower with many drops of sweat spilt , sharp intakes of breath and tense moments and movements as the Little Mermaid was maneuvered in quite a small space occupied with many other vessels and equipment. She was pushed out onto the slipway wharf on a trailer and then with the help of a crane and straps lifted up and into the water, the crane operators orders were simply “ DON’T DROP IT !! “
