Unbelievable! Lets hope these guys don't do boat lifts as well. Use them at your peril...

looks suspicious

Is it just me being a cynic or does anyone else think that last picture has been photoshopped? Where'd the people go? Why aren't the ones left not running like hell? Why is it so blurry around the crane? How did this crane manage to get from 20 feet from the wall to over it without flipping over?

Is this is for real?

Quite funny - even if the last image is a fake. Definitely a photoshop job. Take a look at image 5 in the sequence - the folks on the quay have identical poses.

kinda sad but funny. the company I work for is currently using as huge forklift and crane to load an evaporator we built onto a flat bed headed for NJ. Waiting to see if it bounces.

I was on the USS Nassau around 1998. A crane in Malta was lifting our JLG from the pier to our flight deck. Dropped it half way up, bounced first time, then tires blew and axles broke.

You know I think you're right; the last picture looks to be dodgy. Boy I hate being duped!

Doesn't really stand their Ebay marine salvage auctions in good light then, does it.

And neither is there a splash from the crane boom entering the water.
