Tow trucks are nice and all and they certainly can come in handy. But some situations – like when a massive truck is nearly underground – just need a little more power. That’s where a barge (the “Stolt Variante” in this case) comes in. As awesome as this ship pulling this truck out of the mud is, one misstep could take the vehicle from between a rock and a muddy place and throw it in the ocean.
Somewhere there’s probably a manager wondering why that guy on the bike hasn’t shown up to work yet.
