To be fair. The boat is in the water.
It’s in the water. The seabed is under the water, and magma under that
There is water at the bottom of the ocean. Under the water, carrying the water...
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!
Water dissolving and water removing
It's definitely in the magma
Congrats you now own a submarine
Who’s the u boat commander?
* un der water *
Task failed successfully
Did anyone check the weight limit on this thing? Who tf just gets a crane, eyeballs a BOAT, and says “yeah, it’ll probably be fine.” Who are these carefree idiots?
It could be that they checked to see if they were ok with picking it up and didn't check if they were ok where they needed to drop it off. The weight limit would be lower if they had to swing the boom out farther.
Correct. Boom angle and telescope deployment is probably the biggest factor what got them here. Especially while setting a load below there wheel line.
Could even be they just didn't account for the weight of full fuel/water/septic tanks. Probably they are dumb dumbs though.
Im surprised the gadgets in a crane dont already sense the weight on each footpad and lock out any movements that would result exceeding some minimum weight on any footpad.
Newer cranes can sense weight. This is not a newer crane
It’s about more than just weight, though. What kind of ground were they operating on? Did they level the crane? Were there pads under the outriggers? Was the load weight estimated correctly when calculating operating range of lift? Or maybe the operator did not set up the ALM correctly (basically a digital device that can warn you of things like you were asking about plus much more). Perhaps they knew the weight and calculated incorrectly how far the crane was allowed to telescope or boom? Many variables. Even wind.
Edit: something to note… a 50T crane can’t simply pick 50T. That rating means it can lift a 50T load in a very particular range of boom angle, telescope deployment, and cab swing radius relative to the front of the crane. And that’s all with outriggers fully deployed on level ground and pads under them. Once you boom down beyond a certain point or telescope out beyond a certain point, etc… you have to calculate your max lift capabilities because they decrease exponentially. Even current fuel load in the tank is a factor in some cases.
It made it in the water, didn't it?
I mean... It's in the water...
Fuck, just how strong is that guy pushing on the boat?
Hey, you scratched my crane!
Now just cable down easy
Well, you said into the water, not onto the water. Be more specific next time.
I'll just leave [this](https://youtu.be/1IGsErYVgDk) here
Except the third bit it fake. Saw this going around between 8 and 10 years ago. The green truck slipping is Photoshop.
What's a load chart? This is why most countries require classes to obtain certifications. OSHA inspectors in the U.S. have almost as much authority as a police officer.
Idiots in cranes. What do boat owners know about lifting shit with cranes?
The one that dived out of the way of an overturning crane? What frigging priorities do you have?
So that what they were doing
This should be renamed to ‘there was an attempt at filming something properly’ 🤦♀️
I blame the two old farts pushing on the boat. They hulked and pushed the crane over it's limit... brutes!
I dont see why its a fail, clearly they wanted to lower it further.
It’s a simple question of weight ratios
Looks like the crane decided it was a submarine now.
I have a sailboat really similar to that and that would certainly ruin my day
What could go wrong
Has anyone ever successfully launched a boat with a crane?
that's a paddlin'
