I said I would return once my card repaired. It works … the african way
It was not without difficulty
Sunday evening: Boat late
Monday evening: Boat gone
But I saw a RO RO (The video is at the end of the story)
Tuesday night: Boat in the harbor, will arrive around midnight
And tonight I’m waiting, at the entrance of the port, that Arnaud calls me
Bingo! I enter the terminal
Escorted by a guardian angel who provides me with helmet and vest
Everyone works hard
Well, here I am at the foot of the machine. 1200 tons! It can work with a wind that blows up to 72 kilometers an hour!
Arrived at the top, I meet Linda. Decidedly, I only fall on female crane drivers !
Who reassures me on the glass floor of his cabin “It can support 600 tons” Of the glass anyway!
Some pictures but the videos are much more apparent
Here is the ship that is unloaded. 67 tons of maximum load under spreader!) The spreader (yellow) is the thing (12.4 tons anyway) that is used to take containers. And the rudder weighs 4.3 tons!
Here is what remains to unload …
Linda wanted me to take her seat, just to make a photo
With the authorization of the Son, the Father and the Holy Spirit, I maneuvered the spreader (I lowered it three meters and reassembled all, that’s all!)
Here are the panels of the hold of the ship that are docked, the time to empty what is inside.
Before boarding, I asked my companion to go down the stairs
As a wimp, I finally went back to the elevator (coward !)
In short, an amazing evening!
RO RO of Monday
I go !
45 meters high!
