Photo of the Week
September 27, 2015
Like last week, this week's photos are a scans from my old 35mm slides
I took in the early 80's while transiting the Canal on the boom of the
Crane Hercules. These will be the last of this series of slide
scans which turn full circle to the first one I posted of us leaving
Rodman on a launch. These two are our approach to Rodman Navy
docks. I am not sure what these docks look like today or what they
are used for, but this is the Rodman that I remember. Below you
can see one of the Crane Hercules's large pulleys that feeds cable to
either the boom or hook.
This was a nice series and brought
back good memories of this trip that most people wouldn't of had the opportunity
to do a parcel transit of the Canal on the boom of the Crane Hercules.
Something new starting next week.
