    A floating causeway, Its made of individual crafts connected with "flexors" to keep them together, its pretty much a giant ocean bridge, that is anchored down and connected to the beach at the front allowing vehicles to be transported from a amphib ship out at see to shore. I also work with ABLTS " Amphibious Bulk Liquid Transfer System" which is to transport fuel and water from a ship to a temporary shore command.

    In the image I posted first, the 3 crafts with the A-frame are warping tugs and used for picking things up and transporting them about. usually placing anchors and "rescuing" of other crafts. The hard to see one in the middle of the first 2 is a power mod, Its pretty much the beast of the group and does all the grunt work by pushing and pulling everything into place.

    We also do support groups here at the base and create temporary bases, bridges, and can builds houses and schools for charities. I've not gotten to do the last 2 though.

    The second image here is actually the old models, which really aren't used for anything but the schools anymore.

    I work for a sports lighting company. We just lit the new rc track in Chico,CA at A Main Hobbies. Anytime you watch nascar races or other sporting events most of time that's our lights.We also light the Olympics. We manufacture everything but the light bulbs themselves. Its a very rewarding job that lets me take time off to go RC racing. :)
