    Just saw how they load the boats. Very interesting. The most dangerous part is when the divers are sent down to make sure all the boats are properly supported on their blocks before the water is removed. When the transport is refloated, extra supports for the boats are welded onto the deck.

    Neat.

    And the most nerve racking part is standing on the dock watching your baby take her place on the deck.

    It is quiet fascinating.
