These guys have been entertaining us with their silly antics, dangling about whilst they attach the port side of the tow bridle to the port forward caisson:

I hope they get paid a lot of money for doing that.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

I'd do it for free, if only they'd let me. I occasionally get to do stuff like this, but usually when it's a low profile job, not when everyone and his dog is watching....

Crikey that's one scary looking job!!! Those pics are ace and seeing the chaps dangling about really gives the sense of scale as well.
