Boom Truck with Powerblock

Boom Truck with Powerblock, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

This is the boom truck for the Western Venture Herring operations. Instead of a team of ten men handling the huge herring nets, the powerblock attached to the boom on this truck will load the net effortlessly so it can be brought to places like Swan Net up in the Blackburn Industrial park to be mended.

Mooring Setting

There is a cut out in the middle of the deck of this mooring setting rig in which heavy moorings are lowered and lifted out to be serviced. Moorings are heavy objects which lay on the bottom of the ocean which boats attach a chain and line to secure their boat in the open water.
