Road trip to Mecca

Hey David

Great photos. That is one I 'pilgrimage' on my "bucket list" I plan on making in the future & with any luck, it'll be in the resto'd P-car.

From an avowed aircraft & airshow junkie,
Cheers & Thanks
JB

The structures you ask about are cranes; gantry cranes or straddle cranes. They are able to traverse the length of the vessel and are used both for lowering cargo into the holds and for stacking cargo on the deck.
