Big Rig


I had to go to Ingleside TX this morning to work on a furnace. On the way back, I saw this big jack-up rig being towed by five tug boats. They took it into the Kiewit yard on La Quinta channel. It was quite a spectacle.

Sheesh that thing is HUGE!! 5 Tugboats!!! Yikes!!! Great photo and so glad you shared it!! You always amaze me as you know the names of all the channels and such...I'm clueless, lol...and No NOT blonde, just clueless!!
Have you seen the Rigs they have in the North Sea...There was a discovery program where they built one in a Loch and then hauled it out to sea...It was so sweet!! I have a photo of the one (printed from the internet)and at the time it was the largest (can't remember it's name) but now they have ones that are bigger...

I was a little disappointed with my photos today from Rockport/Fulton...They were all so dark, grrr...We lost the sun to cloud cover as we arrived and I was NOT happy!! And I did NOT want to use the tripod either...
