According to this Notice to Mariners, five large fully erected gantry cranes are expected to arrive from China on the deck of the ship Zhen Hua 23 on Mon 2nd Nov.

These will be unloaded directly on to the new quayside
being built opposite New Brighton. Weather permitting!

She looks top heavy, must have been calm in the bay, a sign of the times, few or little shipbuilding yards, virtually no steelworks, and an almost no Merchant Navy, and we have a Chinese ship delivering Chinese built gantries, made with Chinese steel, this government sure looks after everybody bar their own people and industries, moan over, will be down to see her unload.

The link states she is coming in on the 3pm high tide. I'm guessing New Brighton by the fort - or upstairs at the Floral with a cuppa! - would be a good place to view her. Arrive early to be on the safe side.

Thanks, dont know much about tides . So I gather the ship comes in the same time as the tide is at its absolute highest , 3pm, but we give it half an hour's leaway because the tide stays in for a while.Got it.

Well, if she is due to actually dock (or moor, or whatever) at 3pm, you might see some interesting manouevring(sp?) if you get there earlier than that. It'd be more fun to see her in motion, I think.

And its for a British dock.

Ship has a draught of 8.4m (27'4") with its current load, basically they fill it full of water putting much of the heavy parts of the ship below the waterline to keep it bottom heavy. When it unloads the cranes it takes on more water and sinks until the deck is level with the dockside then roll the cranes off.

Whatever ballast she has in her, wouldn't instill any confidence in me if she is caught in extreme weather conditions sick

There have been two incidents with these ship both in 2008 ...

Zhenhua 10 broke its moorings and ended up beached with 5 cranes onboard - luckily a salvage company managed to refloat it without it toppling.

Zhenhua 23 with 3 cranes onboard at Felixstowe in 80mph winds broke its moorings and knocked a dockside crane which fell into another. The onboard cranes survived ok.
