  1. Sheerleg

    A sheerleg is a floating crane, but, unlike crane vessels, it is not capable of rotating the crane independently of the ship. There is huge variety in sheerleg capacity. The smaller cranes start around 50 tons in lifting capacity, with the largest being able to lift over 4000 tons. The bigger sheerlegs usually have their own propulsion system and have a large accommodation facility on board, while smaller units are floating pontoons that need to be towed to their workplace by tugboats. Sheerlegs are commonly used for ships salvage, assistance in shipbuilding, loading and unloading large cargo into ships, and bridge building. They have grown considerably larger over the last decades because of growth, mainly because the components of ships and harbor equipment have grown as well.
