Oops!!!

This is Canoe Cove Marina's travel lift yesterday. Not sure what exactly happened yet, but it did have a boat in the slings at the time. Apparently no one was hurt.

Re: Oops!!!

Ouch. Maybe it tried to pick up something just a little too heavy.

I don't know what it was trying to lift, but my wife and I have spent many an hour sitting in the cafe next door watching this operator run this crane, he gets pretty cocky with it sometimes.

Re: Oops!!!

Looks like he drove off the tracks. Not hard to do if you don't have someone helping you.

That's what I think he did too. That, or the crane itself folded up.
This guy just goes a little bit too fast for my likeing sometimes. When he does water a boat he kind of gives it a little swing in the slings and shoots the boat out of the end of the piers slip. They are very busy down at Canoe Cove right now so he would have been in a hurry.

Re: Oops!!!

Sucks for him, for the marina, and all the folks who need their boats lifted. Safety is rule #1 and gremlins love people who are in a hurry.

Re: Oops!!!

I've been an operating engineer for 33 years, safety and patience is priority #1.

Re: Oops!!!

Oh dear, a friend has his boat out for work there at the moment, he must have been due back in about now, hopefully that wasn't his boat in the slings at the time, although knowing his luck at the moment, probably was.
