"There's TWO thousand pounds in a ton? I thought it was ONE thousand! THAT explains it!"
That is NOT going to buff out.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: Oops|...Shelter Island...Richmond/Vancouver

AFAIK that was the biggest hoist in the city - an 8 wheeler, well over 100 tons. I wonder if it was simply overloaded or if something like a critical fastener failed.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Oops|...Shelter Island...Richmond/Vancouver

This happened Saturday morning.
It's a 150 ton hoist that was used by Stones Marine in Nanaimo many years ago. This hoist must be well over 30 years old by now. Looks like it just folded up under the load.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
