Re: sailing past a boat that can jack itself out of the water
Probably not the same thing. The LA "boat" is some sort of well workover rig, though the style is not familiar to me. Practically all of the coastal drill rigs are "jack-up" types.
The barge you saw in NJ probably had vertical pilings to hold it's self stationary, but could not actually jack itself up; that was a dredge. They do look somewhat similar when in the water, not jacked.
