What goes down must come up, at least when the Mega Movers are around! This episode showcases an amazing array of ship recovery operations.
- The ultimate in heavy lifting.
- Engineers are put to the test relocating everything from 19th century churches to massive factories.
- Unbelievable salvage operations on the high seas push even the Mega Movers' limits!
If you're the type who can't leave anything behind, you may have to call in the MEGA MOVERS. Whether it's a 19th century church, a railroad bridge or an entire beach there's nothing our experts can't relocate. Of course, when it comes time to lift a structure from its foundations and head down the road (at a fraction of a mile an hour), every creak and groan can provide a vital clue, and a mistake of an inch could spell disaster.
Some of the most magnificent ships in history met their fates at the bottom of the sea. It's always been assumed that they were lost forever, consigned to an eternal watery grave. But then the Mega Movers got involved.
It's time to test your seas legs as MEGA MOVERS plies the waves in search of sunken treasure: history's greatest ships. All hands are on deck as a 580-ton English warship surfaces for the first time in 400 years. And a particularly challenging salvage in the Baltic brings the crew back for repeat attempts before the 17th century Vasa finally sees the light of day. Then see how they brought the Normandie up from the bottom of New York Harbor before she could irreparably pollute the waters. And learn the incredible story of a single man who salvaged 28 scuttled WWII-era German ships from the Scapa Flow.
It's a deep subject, it?s EXTREME OCEAN SALVAGE!
