Friday the 3th of February our diving team traveled to the port of Flushing in order to lift a yacht ( catamaran ).
These lifts are carried out in several ports such as Antwerp, Flushing, Ghent, Zeebrugge, Ostend, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and many more.
Since our diving team wanted to be on time, they started to travel in the early morning. The sun accompanied our team during their 1 hour ride to Flushing. Upon arrival the weather conditions were still the same and the sun was shining all over the place. But, when they were about to start the lifting the weather conditions changed radically. Heavy snowfall was about to cover the whole Benelux area, resulting in an enormous 1275 km traffic jam.
Nevertheless our team succeeded to lift the yacht safely and well. Lifting yachts, vessels, tugs etc are being performed on very regular base.
