Tank move.

Shout out to any of the MASIV folks or other local reefers for a tank moving party.
Trying to go this Sunday October 11th.
Any help would be great.
Food and beverage given for compensation.

Thanks,

Todd

You know I'm in. Jimmy 6 pack, Kevin Erv, and some other Redneck Reefers should be available Sunday. Remember I got the piano movers, appliance dolly, and other weapons of destruction. Keep me posted.

Ok Guys, Thanks.
What time works for everyone?
I'm going to have 2 suction cups also.We only used two last time, but more is sure helpful.
Working on getting a tow strap, around a 25 footer. Had a line on one, hope it comes through.
Joe,
I've still got a little prep work to do on Sat., may take a run down for S@G, meet some more folks. I'll see how far I get by then.

Todd, should I grab the piano movers or a nice carpeted low to the ground wheeled cart to help from the garage to the top of the stairs?

Give me a call. I'll be doing bad things to Crappies and Bass most of the day, but I'll have my cell on me. If it don't work, leave a message on the land line.

Thanks everyone who helped with tank move part 1.
Hopefully move 2 will go as quick or quicker.
No stairs in move 2 at least.
Looks like I even picked up a tow strap.

No water, need to drain and move other one first. Got the overflow done, need to mount it on the tank. Waiting for bulkheads, light hanger, reflector glass, plumbing parts. Hope to have all next week. The light rack should be close to being done by then too.
