Did you catch the name of the ship ? ?I saw one on Discovery last Month...fascinating.They sink it partially to lift the rig.

The tugs are Far Grip and Pacific Wrangler, they were regular visitors here for a few months after the rig left.We also had a jack up rig (West Triton) working off the coast but it was too far offshore for any decent photos. The tugs working with it were Pacific Battler and Pacific Valkyrie, they used our port as a base so I saw them a few times a week and got heaps of photos.

This rig was towed only, I don't think they use the heavy lift ships for these semi sub rigs.
