||The 64 tonne hull took 2 attempts to lift by the Apache floating crane following a miss judgment in her weight calculation. On the 2nd attempt the strops were positioned in a slightly different place and again carefully placed and fastened around her girth. The hull shape made the initial alignment challenging, however with good communication between the diver, topside and lifting supervisor the lift was completed with remarkable success.
