Craning Day

The weather looked good, the team was ready, it was time to crane those containers onto the foundations. Although it stayed fine, a southerly developed around 4 pm which put paid to our plans to finish all the craning that day. We had a few hiccups and it was the morning of the 3rd day by the time we finished but it was great to see them all in place. There was still a lot of work to be done but there was a lot of satisfaction that everything was in place to finish the job.

Gentlemen, I think we have a quorum, let's make a start!
