What good fortune that no one was hurt and only minor damage happened.

While rare, those type of accidents are one reason that I don't haul my boats unless I absolutely have to. The other reason of course is that I'm cheap.

Some of us aren't lucky enough to boat in an area where Travelifts are available. It's not a bad thing though, to have to rely on cranes from one of the world's largest crane manufacturers.

I'm guessing it was the big one. This is all I can find about the accident, but I remember discussing it with people in Steveston:

There are four "holed" metal straps welded to the frames (note SS fitting sticking up from the gunwale). Part of original construction. Works for a steel boat.

Here's the crane that lifted it out....


and the crane that set it back in the water. I don't know what the rated capacity is for this crane but it never broke a sweat lifting the boat.
