Kingston, NY Barge Move

Rigging/Heavy Hauling

Kingston, NY / April 2014

We don’t just move houses and buildings! Wolfe House & Building Movers also does rigging and heavy hauling, as we demonstrated in dramatic form when we moved this 60′ x 150′ barge weighing 750,000 pounds (375 tons!) out of dry dock to be refinished. Once the work was complete on this shipping barge, we returned it back to the water on the Hudson River in Kingston, New York and launched it there. Barges are designed to have the consistent support of water, so properly supporting the weight of the ship was an important consideration in this rigging project.
