This is a floating dry dock. It has tanks built into it that are pumped full of water to lower it so a ship can steam in. Then the tanks are pumped out raising the dock and the ship high and dry.
I have no idea what this is for.
Had to stop and wait for traffic in St. Johns River

1815 - docked at Beach Marine in Jacksonville, FL. I could have kept going but I had to stop here to pick up spare pump kits that I had ordered at West MarinePrev Home Next
