Harborcam Update!

FYI,
As requested, I have moved the harborcam view slightly more to the West in order to catch some of the industrial shoreline.

  1. Thank you Dennis, Now we can enjoy the action at the fuel dock, the port dock along side, and last but not least we all can watch self unloaders at American salt which we normally don't get to see. Great job, thanks again.

  6. I just saw the closeup of the terminal on Pier B Cam. Nice, thanks. I was curious about how those saltie ships' cranes worked and they're showing one right now. Casna

  7. The cranes on the salties are there to unload bulk cargo. The large land crane that you see has a bucket on it and is scooping out the clay from the cargo holds.

    1. I think the land crane was red? What I noticed was that one of the yellow cranes was in an operating position(extended bar and hook-don't know the terms. ) When they come under the bridge of course they're in their rest position and that's the only way I'd seen them before this. The yellow crane didn't look like it was moving though . Scooping clay with a bucket seems kindof old Fashioned! Casna

  8. Love the closeup views. Being very new to understanding how iron ore boats work, it was cool to see some of the action.
