Dutchy, your cranes are truly amazing! I watched that video. Looked like a pretty bad day for those guys and I am glad no one was hurt. Where was that?

Wow that is excellent work Dutchy !
I had no idea that they where that big .
Watching the attached video I am not surprised in what happen putting all the weight on one side of the barge had to lead to trouble .

Beautiful workmanship Dutchy! I watched the video twice, that was unbelievable. All the weight was on one side and then they shifted more to that same side. Anyway glad no one was hurt, love your work, so much nice detail.
