    Gigantic vessel doing immense work, not to mention 'handing off' the platform to another. Well, of course, MV Pioneering Spirit isn't built for littoral navigation. But one simple action made biggest impression, the laser cut yet interlocking separation of the upper structure. 31 seconds in. Safe bet that pitch spacing is not even numbered or same 180 apart.
    How possible would this be just severed, as in an obvious straight cut, not?
    Sincerely,
