Dec 21 - moving the crane

Loading crabe on a barge

Tug boat pushing


Spectators


Making a ramp as they go


Get out of the way


Keeping the barge tight to the bank




Parked for now - could it operate from here ?




Box for water ?

I believe the white tank on the lowboy trailer is for the steel "Monocote" spray on fireproofing, the liquid part, (in tank) is mixed with the "fiberous" part, and then sprayed on the steel.
