have to look pretty closely to see what is going on
here. It is the Dockwise Swan unloading the Exmar 1
platform by submerging itself. the photograph
was taken by Grant Taylor late in 2008, I think in
Corpus Christi in the GOM. If you want to do this
job in Europe, it is quite difficult to find
sheltered waters that are deep enough. But the
Americans work it out by dredging at the dockside.
You have to admire their direct approach.
