Getting Down In Zih

I had my doubts they'd ever get this thing afloat, and with some weather on the way they'll have to beach it again soon, but for now the grua sits on the Flexifloat driving down pilings into place where the rebuilt pier will be. They're still having problems with the barge with the pilotes. Yesterday it was fine, but this morning one end was sitting low again. The pump was running hard this morning trying to get the water out, and it kept drifting perpendicular to the beach, which might not have been what they intended. Bouncing up and down on the bottom of the bay, especially with pilotes loaded on top, is possibly why leaks keep forming. Though lots of folks standing around watching have lots of opinions and criticisms, I see progress being made.

This is the kind of "action" I like to see. These folks work damn hard, but we certainly enjoy the fruits of their labors.
