    The porous of the piles being driven along a shore line would in all likely hood have been the precursor for a retaining wall in an effort to slow or prevent erosion
    Hopefully someday I will be able to recover lost data from several of my old hard drives to sho w3 or 4 of the barges and pile drivers I built years ago
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Hi Toma, I explain at the beginning of the video that it is to replicate the concrete edge on the other side of the causeway. It is all long complete now, I will take some pics if I remember.

    What a blast!

    I am guessing you had the machine in mind, then scoured the area for a job that would give you and excuse to build it.

    It would be fun to see how they did the rest of the project. Any pics or links?

    Thanks.

    No the barge was purpose built for hammering piles into this very lake (well 2 lakes). I have yet to find what has happened to footage after this point, but I can always take some pics to show you the finished result. I should do it soon before we get more rain so you can see the below waterline view as it currently stands.
