    I am amazed that little outboard engine can move that barge!

    They do a lot of casson pounding for boathouses and docks, they build a few dams too. I've never seen the pounder up close but I am pretty sure its a vibratory type, it hangs off the quick coupler I guess. Next time I see them I will ask some questions.

    Very neat. I would love to get into marine construction as I like boats and that a lot. I know by me they do a lot of dredging by pumping. Do they excavate up there or pump the mud?

    Barge......I went through all your posts.....nice work and it looks like great fun. You mentioned environmentally friendly hydraulic oils.......are you using vegetable oils? Have you switched all the machines over? If so, do you notice any differences (other than price))?
