British Columbia in Canada, the boat Seaspan Harvester transports and delivers wood with a peculiar technique. This barge timber uses a novel method to dump its cargo, it capsized and tilts 30 ° to bring down the trunks of trees in the water. Free engine, this barge was designed to load and unload the goods itself, the train is pushed by the tug Seaspan King.
Bought in Bremen, apparently (after, we imagine, a distinguished career in the Wasserschutzpolizei). Currently being fitted-out right there on the quay.
