BLOG: Massive "Crane Ship" Makes its Pass Under Bay Bridge

Wow - and you thought the bridge towers were big..

Wow - if you are anything like me, you are always humbled when passing under the massive suspension towers of the Bay Bridge when riding over the Chesapeake.

But the gargantuan ship Zen Hua 13 steaming up the Bay today gave us a whole different perspective.  Turns out the new super-sized cranes it had on board (headed for the Port of Baltimore) were so huge it had to make its pass a low tide - and even then they shut down traffic on the bridge out of an abundance of caution!

Check out the attached pics and video we captured from the Bay Bridge Marina on Kent Island, and you'll quickly see why!
