Oh, but it has been: What is this boat used for?

On the crane-yacht-dropping video, the man says "I can't believe it" over and over again. He's south American, judging by the accent.

Yes, you're right, Endojoe. I also see that the picture is no longer a part of that other thread, as well. Knottybuoyz' Nautical Oddities thread is definitely the right place for it.

Good addition to the thread.
