Here are some pictures of the Otterbacher Shows Space Shuttle project. The ride went through a complete rebuild last winter. These guys did a great job. The project pictures were given to me by MCW Member kizarney. I will let him answer all questions. I added some pics of the completed Space Shuttle from this year.

I guess there wasnt "problems" so to speak...

It is definitely heavy for what it is, lowering the boat down into place was difficult for us. Other than that it was just heavy and took us a while to learn a good way to move it...lol

Billy, If you guys keep the Shuttle is there any plans to possibly upgrade the lights?
