    That's a good deal, I could see you wasting all sorts of production time messing with that curtain.

    Im not sure on the price of the intake,theres also a water treatment plant but the project sign lists it as 126 million. Its the biggest kind of work done now in this country ,they have killed all other forms of real industry.

    That is a slick rig, you don't see 35 tons with jibs much. I want to ask about the chart, LOL.

    There was a big processor ship fire at Trident Seafoods last night in Tacoma. I worked on that dock in 2019, replacing piling, caps, stringers, and deck. Note that we had to suspend the conduit and piping runs so we could replace sections of cap under it.

    We used one of Trident's operators and this ancient whirly to do this deck repair. If he used the boom at all, he got out of the seat and went back to insure the dog was in. Needless to say we used a lot of travel.

    I saw a Ness conventional house and boom butt going down the road today, but no idea of model or if it was a crawler or a truck crane.
    What was cool was it was all compacted to go on a 48" high truck deck. I had never seen a big house that was not on a lowboy. It looked to be about 10' wide or so.

    Why would they build a fire station out of wood? Not that those aren't gorgeous wood beams, but I like the idea of a steel or masonry fire station.

    They used to say that a wood king beam in a house would take more heat than a steel beam. The steel will bend under the heat and fail, before a wood beam burns through.
