        Uuuh, such long waiting. I wouldn't have been so patient. Do you have any idea, why the left crane is not folded down? I would suggest that this will be much better for wind protection and stability of the platform??

        As a truckdriver l'm used to wait.
        I don't know why's that, maybe to give it a more impressie look.
        With that massieve platform and 8 langs, i don't think that that crane boom would make much difference.
        Later near the Heerema plant, the second boom was raised.
        Which went pritty quick
