Capes I could live with. I am more concerned about the tights. After seeing QPS in his Elvis costume from his picture in the who we are thread, I have a saying now for guys in tights. NO CAMEL TOE! I still cant view "The King" in the same light any more.

[QUOTE=hvy 1ton;3310989]Great pics man, marine construction and environmental work is really sweet specialization. Forestry and Marine work is just cool, at least i think it is. How many sections do you have for your spud barge and how many HP is your tug?

We have six 4' pieces, 4 make up a 32x50 and 2 make a 16x32 which can be pinned to the back and make a 32x66. The tug is a 250hp John Deere, we also just got a really old 30x70x6 barge that was a sectional but they welded it togeather so that is a upcoming project of cutting it apart and bringing it to our shop.

Here are some pictures from the day, started out a bit cold, had to break through a skim of ice all morning.
The second is after a unload heading back to get loaded up, and the rest are some quick shots of unloading and parked for the night. Had to stop early and backfill a garage footer before the rain.

I'm looking at doing some marine dredging next year. I think the set up have in your last pic would work pretty good. What size barge is that?

Right now we have it set up as a 30x60, I'm interested, how big of a dredge job is it?

Well we only got one load in today and decided to quit the wind was something fierce, gust up to 60 mph. TSS we don't get rained out but when the wind is over 30mph it gets interesting to say the least, barge acts like a sail boat, only got one picture.

3000 yards dredging out a marina, need something that will hold up a 25 ton machine but small enough to reach up into the boat slips. how many yards of wet sand do you think that would hold ( safely now) chris does not want to go swimming.

All i have to do is loading, float it over to the shore. couple 100' away and offload it with another machine into a large pit.
