RE: Service Elevator Ramp

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

We designed the first handicap accessible marina here in San Diego.  During construction of the marina, the electrical sub foreman was a wheelie.  He took great joy in flying down the ramps to the floats.  At the base of the ramp, the float was at right angles to the ramp and he took great pride in careening down the ramp and hooking a hard right at the base, just narrowly missing going into San Diego Bay by inches.  He was a great show-off and we really enjoyed his antics.

Well, it could happen.
