Picking up a rudder at Staten Island

Today the senior class went on a trip to Staten Island to pick up a rudder with Privateer. The trip took us about 3 hours to complete, and we worked as a team. Using the crane on Privateer, the rudder was picked up by two hooks because of its sheer weight, and once it was aboard,  we took it back with us to Pier 101 (Governors Island).  The video above is showing how we attached the hooks of the crane onto the rudder, and how we lowered the massive object onto wooden placeholders on board.
