An Impressive Ship Designed to Transport Massive Loads (11 pics)

Called a “heavy –lift ship”, this vessel is able to lift and transport other ships from the water or move oil rigs across the sea.

 

A heavy-lift ship is a vessel designed to move very large loads that cannot be handled by normal ships.
This is the Blue Marlin, a semi-submerging vessels capable of lifting another ship out of the water and transporting it.
Like the USS Cole.
Or, say, a dozen other transport ships.
Or this Oil Rig

SBX-1 - The Sea-Based X-Band Radar, which is a floating, self-propelled, mobile active electronically scanned array radar station designed to operate in high winds and heavy seas. It is part of the U.S. Defense Department Ballistic Missile Defense System.

Drilling rigs with a gridwork of iron below them creating a giant footprint to stabilize the weight. They jack up out of the water with those large legs.

And here are three of them.

Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.
