Crane Fishing (and a Duck)

There was a dramatic incident at the Fish and Duck Marina at Pope’s Corner (a few miles downriver from us) recently. A large, eight wheeled mobile crane fell into the marina, ending up the wrong way up with all its wheels in the air like a bug. Thankfully no-one was hurt (the driver managed to escape) and no boats were damaged. The Cambridge News carried the story, and there was an extensive slide show on their website. The crane has now been removed from the water, by another crane, which managed to remain upright!

Spot the familiar boat in the foreground!
