Strong winds and persistent rain were no match for the drama and enthusiasm last Friday when the deckhouse mold for the new Viking 92 Convertible was pulled from the plug.
Once the plug and deckhouse mold were removed from Building 5, a 35 ton and a 350 ton crane went to work lifting the 64,000 pound mold.
When the deckhouse mold was clear, the plug was pushed back into the building.
Cranes raise the deckhouse mold high in the air in order to provide clearance for the next step.
The excitement ramps up as the cranes work slowly in tandem to gently turn the deckhouse mold upright.
