"Unfortunately, the cranes’ massive height also made maneuvering them under the Bay and Francis Scott Key bridges a delicate task.
In order to ensure that the ship would fit under the bridges, crew members lowered the booms on each of the four cranes before passing under the bridges.
Ballast was also added to the ship, weighing it down just enough for the ship to pass under each bridge.
Still, even with these efforts, the clearance between the cranes and the bridges was an estimated six feet, close enough to cause the closure of both bridges for 20 minutes while the ship passed under." Dundalk Eagle

The Admiral and I where cruising in the upper bay in June 2012 and passed this as it was staged for going under the Bay bridge.

Bet the insurance company turned blue until the pass was completed.

Can you imagine if they screwed up the clearance.

All the "Zhen Hua" vessels are Submersible Heavy Cargo Ships.
