February 23, 2006: Sparky and unbuilding the great Mammoet

Early this afternoon, Sparky found our team - busy unbuilding on the Pearman cantilever sections and building on the Grace cantilever. Our fearless ironworkers and a couple of Mammoets (pronounced Mamoot). (Left to right) Nugget, Chucky, Jeff, Derek, Chris and Charles

The west assembly - one umbrella to go
