Barge transportation on the Great Lakes

Special Projects

Kindra Lake Towing provided heavy lift crane service and barge transportation for Skipperliner Yachts when the upper 2 decks of a large dinner yacht were removed in Lemont to get under the low railroad bridge. This luxury vessel was built at Skipperliner’s facility in LaCrosse, WI and was bound for Detroit. The upper decks came off in one piece and were placed into a barge and brought to our yard for reassembly. The lifting required two 150 ton cranes to lift the upper deck in unison.

Kindra Lake Towing provided ballasting services and barge towing to move a large, 500 ton electrical stator on Goldhofer trailers from Lemont to St. Joseph, MI. The barge had to be ballasted to one foot of freeboard to clear under the low railroad bridge in Lemont.
