Only someone 'on helium' would dare!
Gosh, looks more like hydrogen from the way she's neutral up there.
Or, could it be that redman is the first to use PS version 14?
I think that Redman should have made the crane look like a cement mixer instead of a flat bed.
I think it's the new Roamer balloon for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. Watch out for those streetlights, they'll scratch the gelcoat.
Came a cross these two sites which tell the sad story.
Admins, if either of both sites are forbidden please feel free to delete them or the whole thread if both sites are forbidden.
And people who choose to be in a boat held in slings 45' above the water. Put the boat in the water, perhaps just partially, and then board it.
Boats being dropped from slings and forklifts is not uncommon, not with the number of boats lifted in a year. Far more things than boats find untimely deaths in this manner. The key is not letting that extend to humans.
This is the way we like to do it, if a boat is planned as a deck or below deck load. We lift it with its craddle. Much safer and far less stress to the hull.
And it can be lowered into the water and out of the water this way also.
Btw. The lines are made of steel and are only covered with soft material for the protection of the cargo.
I had one boat delivered by the builder, although after we used it over two months. It was shipped in a cradle. Only time I've had a boat shipped.

that might explain why you see vessels only in pic 2 ...
am I making any sense ?
revdcs, one for us fishermen in SW.
Daft new movie about a Choir of Cornish Fishermen. And it's a true story.
Yep, and the actual choir (excluding the actors) are really great singers. They came a did a show for us a few years ago and brought the house down. It's a very poignant story too, well worth seeing.
