Gladsky Marine Offers Large Crane Vessel For Lift Operations

The 180- by 54-foot crane vessel Big Easy is now available for salvage, wreck removal and general lift work in the Northeastern U.S., after undergoing routine hull painting at Hudson Drydock Corp. Owned by John J. Gladsky Jr. of Gladsky Marine of Glen Cove, Long Island, N.Y., the Big Easy features a 135- foot biforcated sheer leg boom which has the ability to lift 250 tons at a 100-foot radius. The vessel can be used for lifts of as much as 600 tons.

According to Mr. Gladsky, the Big Easy was built by Maxon Marine Industries shipyard in Indiana in 1981. Purchased in 1989 by Gladsky Marine, the vessel was previously employed in the Gulf of Mexico for oilfield platform installation.

The Big Easy is scheduled to be used in a wreck removal project shortly, and Mr. Gladsky also plans to utilize the vessel in two marine float launchings at Gladsky Marine's Glen Cove, Long Island, facility.

For information on the availability and capabilities of the Big Easy, contact: John J. Gladsky Jr., Gladsky Marine, Garvcies Point Road, Glen Cove, N.Y. 11542; telephone: (516) 671-2474.
