Is that a "shop dog" or a pile of rags on the lower right ?
its a pile of rags. But surely there must be other things for 2/3rds of those men standing around watching could be doing.
Never try to tell me it can't be done
When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/
Plenty of crew, no doubt, only 3 pair of hands actually doing anything. Remainder clearly trained by State [of your choice] Road-way Departments.
Riggers look to have had a plan, LOTS of dunnage.
The dog "Rags" though played safe, piling up spare cloth to make them THINK we was on station.

...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
How many bodies can you count in this picture?
I wonder if setting the shaft is pretty much the end of the job or at least a fairly important step and the picture is almost like a commemorative for the entire crew, like maybe it will be the last time they will all be together?

Fullsize image: https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/h...l_fullsize.jpgWAVES recruits in the training school at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, enjoy a joke with one of the hospital's Pharmacist's Mates, Patrick La Rosa, engaged in one of the frequent, if not favorite, Navy pastimes of "swabbing the deck”. From left to right are WAVES Jean Rindall, Naomi Edwards, Charlotte Kofoid, Nancy Crane, Carol Peterson, Geneva Dudley, and Jean Aldo. The WAVES are wearing Pharmacist's Mate striker badges on their sleeves, and the poster on the wall admonishes "Don't ever call it a boat! Unless you can hoist it aboard a ship”. 18 July 1945.
