10 enormous floating cranes

10 enormous floating cranes: "Aside from their spectacular size, what makes floating cranes unusual and interesting objects is that they are essentially boats. As such, they dont exactly conjure up the idea of stability, which is the primary requirement for lifting things. They also look weird since boats usually consist of large hulls with smaller superstructure, here the arrangement is reversed making them seem very ungainly.

Some of these cranes can lift tens of thousands of tons, at sea, and are engineering wonders."

A platform hire
stair lift or, perch lift, is a type of stair lift that will transport a person from one level of their home to another. It is not much different than the traditional stairlift but instead the passenger stands on a moving platform instead of sitting in a moving chair.
