Final Lifting Lug Installed in Salvage Efforts on M/V Golden Ray

A crane transfers the final lifting lug from aboard a barge to the hull of the motor vessel Golden Ray in St. Simons Sound, Georgia, June 3, 2020. Welded to the hull, the 16 lifting lugs will provide connection points for the 255-foot tall Versabar VB 10,0000 crane to fasten to in order to secure sections of the hull as they are cut from the wreck during the Golden Ray’s removal.

Weighing over 38 tons, the lug was, like the others, individually designed and manufactured to fit a specific section of the hull in order to stabilize it for cutting and removal by the 255-foot tall Versabar VB 10,0000 floating crane.
