    Pier Clean Up Job. Loaded all of the concrete on the barge and took it out to reshape some entrance piers a few of miles away.

    It is wild the difference from state to state, concrete in the water is a big no-no here.

    That last picture looks like the flip flops would be wet.:)

    That is crazy, we have two schools they are demoing and they are going to haul all of the bricks and concrete to the place we just cleaned off and next year they will bid it to be placed around some more islands:clapping: Job Security

    I have never wore flip-flops yet, had to go bare foot but thats another story:rolleyes:

    How do you like your 315 l? How many hours ? any major problems?
    As always work looks excellent.

    GR- mabee spend a little less time at home on the computer chirping some one Like BM who obviously works his ass off for what he has.(and does a great job!) You see when the going gets tough people like BM, find work. They dont sit at home like you on the computer b*itching about life, while your mom is making you cookies, cleaning your laundry, and paying all your internet porn with her credit card.
    Seriously enough. We are all sick of your bull.If you dont have something nice to say , dont say anything.

    I assume TSS has never worked on the water before I guess you would be scared to see a water on the deck of a barge.

    No its not really safe but aslong as your hatch covers on the barge are well sealed you shouldn't have problems.

    If you had a load of sand or gravel on the barge and it was like that you would be worried. As the gravel/sand absorbs water lower the barge goes and if its starts washing off the weight shifts and it can get real scary.

    Years ago my dad had a barge load of sand flip had 100 tons of sand on the barge the water started to wash it off one side. The weight shifted and the barge flipped on its edge and all the sand slid off. Dad said it only took a couple minutes they quickly let go of the tow rope and let the barge do its own thing.

    I want you guys to watch this maybe you sissies will have a better idea what can happen to tugs and barges. I seriously doubt Barge Man has any experience with this.

    Gr- Tell me one thing in my post that would hint wether or not i have done any work on water? Stop with the stories please . no one cares. Stop hi-jacking everyones threads with your non sense.

    And btw- I built cutom homes and cottages with my father for 3 years, and 80% of them were million dollar projects in the muskokas. Yes we used barges quite frequently to get to the islands, transport materials, equipment , etc. In the winter we even drove trucks across the lakes , loaded with materials. Dont come back with some comment about how you have driven a cat 777 rock truck across the ocean the one time it froze over, when you were 5 years old and the economy sucked then too. No one wants to hear it.
