I haven't watched it all the way through yet. Is there a shot of the crane involved later on? That has to be one heck of a crane for that kind of reach.

We order a crane with a 180 ton (tonne?) lift. Its ballast comes on a separate lorry. I think we pay about £1800 for the days hire, it includes the driver and banksman. Biggest boat is about 14 tons but we have need the big crane for the reach. Last year's liftout was 42 vessels in about eight hours

That's cool. The crane looks like it's about 100 times more efficient than a travelift.

Pretty neat. However, the one crane operation I know of (Connanicut Marina) has had an awful time getting boats launched this year, due to high winds.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

We have to postpone/reschedule about one in twenty liftin/liftouts because of the wind.

If any of you happen to know a good way to create a video from time lapse still images, please let me know. I've been having trouble pulling it together. Using a PC system with jpeg images.
