Giant Oil Rig

IMG_5479

Saw this heading out to the Gulf today. Quiet a site to see up close. These oil rigs are huge. As you can see 4 tugboats were pulling and pushing. According to what I was told this rig was in a shipyard undergoing updates and is now on the way to the Gulf for work until at least 2018. This rig can work in depths of 8500 feet of water.
