Amen to the comments about having an oversize crane equipped with serious outriggers and spreaders. This equipment that hauled my boat a couple of years ago is owned by Lampson Crane International, one of the country's largest crane manufacturers.

Looks like a steel or aluminum hull. Zincs welded to keel visible in two places.

With those clowns banging it around, it's a good time to have a steel hull!

Sketchy rigging on many levels. Dang lucky those slings did not skid on the hull.

Whole episode was sketchy.

Three times I've hauled my rig with cranes. Massive pucker factor and I took way more precautions than that crew.

such a beautiful boat, such a shame

Don't think the boat owner was one visibly freaking out!
