but DAMN thats a beautiful boat

Would like to see the ending. The boat can't still be there.

Flinch is sort of an understatement. If that were my boat, I'd probably have been crapping bricks. I hope it ended well and they got a larger crane.

well, first off...you see those tracks ? not even close to being in the proper position for the angle of the load, and even if the first part worked out, the tracks aree still 180 degrees out of line with a reach out
............... the short end of tracks(rear end) away from the load, the body of the crane is offset from the center of the tracks for a reason......

dont doubt me on this

not to mention doing a side reach/lift, or any lift really with no outriggers
had the tracks been positioned right, he may have been ok, but then again, he had the heavy end of the boat too far away from center....... he was doomed.....

Just briefly looked at the vid, but it appears the boat was in the straps too far forward.

Looks to me like a strap or something else wasn't released at the stern.
How else do you explain the way it 'popped' up?

Part that amazed me was the crew running around under the boat while the crane is on one track.

All decked out in "High Viz" vests so the crane doesn't run them over, otherwise spending time under a load that was already telling them the lift hadn't been well thought out.

I thought this one went over the side and crashed down into the water. Speaking of water there was very little. Just mud up close to where the boat would have been lowered. So it looks like they planed to block it on top from the start.

Must have been another vid I saw.

In addition to the obvious drama, Iíd be worried about how tight that forward lifting strap is against that flared bow. We have to use standoffís with some lifts to prevent damage and our bow isnít flared as much as this boatís.

Yeah, Angus. Definitely need a spreader. And the people cavorting under the frazzling lift while the crane's balancing one one track. Just amazing.

Just a little plug for Raven Offshore (yacht shipper out of BC) and their tendency to have well thought out lifts in my experience. Here in the picture is a bad ass crane with serious outriggers and appropriate spreaders picking Libra out of the water at Churchill Dock in Antwerp Belgium for fitting of her cradle and then loading on her transport to the Americas.
It will still make you pucker but looks a lot better than the rig in the video above.

How about the bystanders continuing to stand under the crane about to fall and kill the lot of them. Absolutely no reason they should be there. I figured the lack of spreaders was going to be the culprit, but nope! Don't know how that boat did not kill somebody, followed by the crane killing the crowd.

Angus, our Defever 44 was damaged last summer when a yard lifted her without standoffs at the bow. Watched it happen. Ripped 10 feet of the cap rail off. The yard fixed it without a wimper. I wasn't too upset because the scarf joints in that section needed work anyway.

Yes, the narrower lifts can really cause some damage. The PO had some sturdy 8 X 8 carpeted wooden blocks to stand the forward strap off at the waterline, but thereís still too much pressure on the cap rails for my liking. I just try to find yards with larger (wider) lifts.
