Launching the John Pinkerton II back in 2013

Someone sent in this video they discovered on youtube of Terranova helping with the delivery of the new John Pinkerton II canal boat back in 2013.  Our 250 tonne mobile crane, the Demag AC250, with its 80m main boom was well equipped to safely complete the task.

The canal boat was being delivered for the Basingstoke Canal Society who operate two trip boats along the Basingstoke Canal (through John Pinkerton Canal Cruises Ltd).

The John Pinkerton II is the larger of their two boats hosting up to 50 guests with all proceeds going directly into looking after the Basingstoke Canal.

We hope you enjoy watching the video.

Same event from a different angle.
