Friday, 1st May 2009, was a day when history was made in the twin island Federation of St Kitts and Nevis, as St Kitts Marine Works Ltd officially opened its Haul out Facility at New Guinea on St Kitts. This development is quite expansive as it comprises, inter alia, a boat yard, a 150 ton marine travel lift and a pier. The modern marine travel lift is a critical feature of the Facility, and is a type of mobile crane that is designed to lift vessels out of the sea, and move them to areas on land and vice versa.
