    Hope the contractor got a hefty change order fee if they had to send anyone to lower that flag, to compensate for being dragged through the muck because they are honoring our war dead.

    Any guesses what the "woke surcharge" will be for any future crane work on that campus? Guessing that the contracts won't allow certified wire rope slings to be suspended in the air in the future...

    Finished up the manbasket on the tower work. I'm going to bet we will be back, these new led's aren't that reliable in my experience. There's always strings that don't end up working right.

    Nothing like the sun in your eyes. Some steel on a cabin porch.

    Fixed a outrigger cylinder on the Galion. Found a missing o ring where the holding valve bolted to the cylinder, it only slowly weeped there, the seal behind the wiper was the real leak.

    New video board, and a HVAC unit. Wind was blowing pretty good on the sign job, and it blew my skylight shut, didn't do the top window any favors.

    None of the barge stuff is my equipment, or the RT that's on it- they bare rented it from central. Its for a powerhouse gate rebuilding job. I'm not big enough to swing a job like that, the company doing it says est. 1919 on their trucks. But they paid me to put their stuff in the water and I'll hope to pull it out in september when they are done.

    That's basically every truckable tug. Anything over 26' is considered a real tug and is regulated as such.

    It is pretty damn cute. That hull shape is spectacular! Looks like an upside down sanding block :)

    Been gone for a week, wife's family get together in the Black Hills. Me and the wife and my two youngest. Had to build a receiver hitch for the wife's honda pilot. I had a old one off a Dodge pickup (I think- its been around a while). A little steel and a little welding and we were good to go.
