Early 70s in the USA, transport of some mooring equipment from a Louisiana shipyard to a neighboring Gulf of Mexico harbor:







Ford F800/391 4x2/2 tractor (modified First Gear model) and Fruehauf-US 2-axle flatbed semi-trailer (First Gear model) loaded with a Gulf Copper CBM 15T anchoring buoy (homemade load)



The buoy (the anchoring chain is still to be fitted on its lower part), before lifting on the work boat for final destination:
