Re: Seen this past week

To me that looks like a specialized heavy lift ship transporting container cranes.......

Re: Seen this past week

This is the ship,
That carried the cranes,
That hit the dredge,
That deepened the channel,
That passaged the containerships,
That brought the goods,
That are in containers,
That fill the shelves,
That are in the WalMart,

--that came from China.

This was taken last weekend actually Friday night. Winds peaked at about 60 knots. The lightening was incredible. It's actually pitch dark outside but the lightening had illuminated enough to appear as dawn.

Ship carrying the cranes passed under the key bridge and is docked in Seagirt Marine terminal, where all the container ships off load cargo.

Their capicities will aloow for the shipping to increas at the terminal.
