News and Reports Crane Out – Wednesday 8th October October 6, 2014 admin The day went well – see Vic’s comments on the home page. Here are a few pictures: The forecast was looking good – so the crane driver was given the go-ahead for 8th October. Inspecting the bank: some doubt as to whether the crane jack will sink in so close to the mud berth on a big lift. There was always some doubt – would the crane be able to lift this large vessel? In the end, the crane wasn’t the problem – the ground close to the mud berth just couldn’t take the pressure. So this was as far as it went – just enough to inspect the prop! The main mast from Nigel’s vessel took some time to remove – it was the first time the vessel had been moved for some time. After an interesting passage down the Creek, mudberth number 1 was used for this operation. We look forward to seeing the results of David Moss’s work on the mast next season! Barry – dressed for the part – made sure we didn’t go hungry. Thanks for carrying on the tradition, Barry!
