This is the box our new main (and the damaged one) arrived in after a few trips around the world.

I fixed the damaged one and here is a comparison of them. Both look good.

Burned Battery Pack
Pyewacket's Lithium batteries overheated and caught fire. Some heroic crew member braved the clouds of dense and acrid smoke to go in and cut the cables so they boxes could be pulled out. Scary.

Dock Line
High tech poly propylene dock line (also used as water ski rope). Funny that they use this, but I guess it is light weight.
