There's one of those in Avalon, NJ, too. I was wondering what the heck it was! Is it a dredge?

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.

PDQ, the one I saw was actually out of the water like this. Next time I'm down there, I'll try to snag a pic.

Re: sailing past a boat that can jack itself out of the water

the "jack up" boats are a stable work platform each of those legs has a 8'x12' pad on the bottom of the leg they can jack all the way up out of the water to the yellow bands on top of the legs , normally dont like to get that high bacause they can get some sway going .

once they are jacked up you dont have to worry about the wave action and you can do maintance on all different hight oil platforms , the platforms in the picture are little sattelite platforms

this one had a electric wireline unit on it and was running well logs on the well.
