Anyone book marked this member?
What was the story behind that pit??
I don't know, even the attachment on the end looks odd.

Looks like maybe it was being lowered by a crane into the cargo hold of a ship and it broke free and fell.
That attachment almost looks like a larger scaled up version of a compressed air needle gun that I used to use in the Navy to chip paint on a submarine. This is what one looks like, note the 'needles' sticking out of the end, very similar looking to that funky looking attachment (http://www.pavingexpert.com/images/brewcabin/needle_gun.jpg )
They may have been using it to bust loose that cargo if it was sticking to the inside of that cargo hold.
I was thinking about that too when I went through the slide show again.
If that was a large scale needle gun, then I bet it was louder than hell when they were using it in that cargo hold.
