Sentry (on the right) has already been slid out of its van far enough to be ready for a crane-lift aboard ship.  Now, TowCam is about to be pulled out of the left-hand van as Tim (yellow hat) and Greg (blue) look on. Note the shoulder-high size of the wheel for the 70-ton crane visible to the left of, and behind, the TowCam container – that’s a serious-sized piece of equipment!
