I presume so, yes. Here's a case from 10 years ago. In the first picture, you see them lifting cargo using the crane on a docked ship that did not have those 4 feet. 10 seconds later, it was capsized.berkeman said:Very cool, thanks for sharing.
Do they raise the ship like that to make it a steadier platform for the crane?
I think they would be concerned about wind.Dr.D said:How smooth does the water have to be for this assembly to happen?
I'm sure that is true, but I was hoping someone could quantify the situation in terms of what is an acceptable sea state.Keith_McClary said:I think they would be concerned about wind.
Once it's jacked up it shouldn't matter.Dr.D said:I'm sure that is true, but I was hoping someone could quantify the situation in terms of what is an acceptable sea state.
Look at the first 4 seconds of the video in the OP. Those yellow jack stands were in place before this ship arrived. We don't know from the video how or when they were placed.berkeman said:It does seem like if there were much wave action that would make the rig too unstable to drop the jack stands cleanly onto the seafloor.
