He shows us his special tool, a favorite in his tool box -- a wire coat hanger!
And this is how it works:
Dale glues a washer to the coat hanger and places it against the block, so he can stab it with the bolt.

As they work, I hear, "a little more to the right -- no back to me a bit -- oops! too far. OK, perfect! Now stab it!"
I am a little nervous with all this dialog, but I realize they know what they are doing, and for that, I am glad!
Success! Here is the finished product.
It is a happy time to see Dale buttoning up the engine with a thousand little bolts that he holds in his hand. Willie's Tug will head out Guemes Channel tomorrow!
