Long Island Crane made history on Sunday, March 11 when for the first time they called in the aid of the South Ferry to move two large sections of a modular home – parked for several days on Long Beach in Noyac — from North Haven to Shelter Island. The homes, which each weighed about 35,000 pounds, were too large to be driven onto the ferry because of the width of the ferry slip stanchions at the South Ferry’s North Haven dock. Long Island Crane employed a 200-ton crane to lift each section onto the ferry, Sunrise, and then off again on Shelter Island where they continued their journey home on Route 114.
