This giant green crane costs £2,000/day and drives at a maximum of 40mph. 

Want to hire it? -- then remember you also pay for (very slow) positioning costs!

The work has been a 9m. extension to the slipway, from the west edge of the bridge directly into Victoria Harbour in order to improve tidal access for the RNLI’s ILB launch and recovery. There has been temporary closure of the Broadhaven slipway and divers were down for several days (!), to be less dependent on the tides. The work caused occasional inconvenience for harbour users however work-dates were changed to make allowance for the craning-in boat lift on 12 April. The works are expected to cease by May 3rd, so fingers crossed.
