June 5, 2006:
Quartet for Manny, Michael, Jackie and Leon

Sparky and I had fun and while I was watching Mickey and Paul, he was catching up with Manny, the divers, Michael, Jackie and Leon.

Here is the worksite

Michael's 1250 unbuilding P-something

with lots of smoke and fury

The last Pearman bearing

and Manny's fishing hole

Here are Jackie (playing the shear) and Leon (playing the grapple)

and our diving team

and Manny in action - lifting a section of the Pearman superstructure from the Cooper River







and finally setting it on the barge
