This is the script for Episode Four of Lords of the Ocean is a reality TV show that follows Matt and Robin, two brothers who’ve inherited Dominion Diving, a family salvage, diving and marine service business.

The Lohnes brothers have also maintained a family legacy; their father’s love of uncertainty, the unknown, the undiscovered, and the unworkable.

00:01:03:00NARRATOR: A devastating hurricane
00:01:04:08is heading straight for Dominion’s home port.
00:01:06:16HERBIE: Right there, right there.
00:01:07:24NARRATOR: Their scrambling to secure their own boats,
00:01:10:24protect a luxury yacht…
00:01:12:20SHAWN: It’s a mad dash everywhere.
00:01:13:21NARRATOR: …and finish a tricky job
00:01:16:01before the storm arrives.
00:01:17:21MATT: There’s a huge potential for a lot of destruction.
00:01:22:04NARRATOR: And there’s big money to be made
00:01:24:00after the hurricane
00:01:25:09hauling up sunken treasures
00:01:27:10sent to Davy Jones’ locker
00:01:29:04by the killer storm.
00:01:31:07For 50 years,
00:01:32:21this family’s built a business
00:01:34:16where nobody else dares.
00:01:36:11Recovering,
00:01:37:14repairing,
00:01:38:20resurrecting anything
00:01:40:08in the world’s most dangerous waters.
00:01:43:01This is their world.
00:01:45:01Saltwater in their blood,
00:01:47:20come hell and high water.
00:01:49:15MATT: It’s go time.

00:02:21:04º MUSIC º
00:02:24:01NARRATOR: Hurricane Dorian.
00:02:25:18The biggest and baddest hurricane
00:02:27:14that ever hit the Caribbean.
00:02:29:11A Category 5 hurricane
00:02:32:00smashing everything in its path,
00:02:34:11killing dozens of people.
00:02:36:13Now it’s tearing its way
00:02:37:20up the East Coast of North America
00:02:40:10heading straight for Halifax,
00:02:42:05the home port of Dominion Diving.
00:02:45:00MATT: We just got word that there’s a hurricane
00:02:47:07making its way up the coast to Nova Scotia.
00:02:49:19They just got flattened down in the Bahamas.
00:02:52:01They had 300 kilometer an hour winds.
00:02:54:22Category 5.
00:02:56:09One of the strongest hurricanes
00:02:57:17in recorded history in that area,
00:02:59:23and it’s on its way right now towards us.
00:03:04:09NARRATOR: In less than 48 hours,
00:03:06:00Dominion Diving will be hit with the triple whammy
00:03:09:04of hurricane force winds,
00:03:10:18heavy rain and massive storm surges.
00:03:15:00SHAWN: The hurricane has just left the Abacos
00:03:17:05and it’s just off the coast of Florida.
00:03:19:17It looks like it may come up
00:03:21:00in between Nova Scotia and Sable Island,
00:03:23:16so we’re going to be  watching the storm  really closely.
00:03:26:01We’ve got a couple days of prep to do just in case.
00:03:30:03We’re not going to downplay it at all.
00:03:34:02HERBIE: We’re going to pull this one back.
00:03:35:24Right there.   Right there.
00:03:38:00MATT: With boats and barges and equipment
00:03:41:03on the boats and barges and stuff,
00:03:42:18that’s a lot of risk for us to try to mitigate
00:03:45:02and minimize our exposure to this.
00:03:47:18So on top of all our projects
00:03:50:05from day to day stuff,
00:03:51:22we’ve got to now start hunkering down.
00:03:55:15SHAWN: It’s our busy season.
00:03:57:12We have a couple of large jobs on the go.
00:04:00:21GARY: This is Dominion Diving,
00:04:02:01we are heading for Bedford Basin
00:04:03:23north of the old China Town dock.
00:04:05:18HALIFAX TRAFFIC: Bearcat, Halifax Traffic, roger.
00:04:08:06NARRATOR: Dominion Diving’s been hired
00:04:09:13to do some heavy lifting
00:04:10:24helping a fisheries biologist restore life
00:04:13:13to the harbour floor.
00:04:16:15SERENA: There is 80 reef balls here…
00:04:18:05OLIVER: Okay.
00:04:19:02SERENA: …and I’m going to get you to do
00:04:20:15three measurements for me.
00:04:22:15The first is the biodiversity.
00:04:26:11SERENA: Dominion Diving and I met back in 2012
00:04:29:22when I came down to the dockyard  and kind of
00:04:33:18proposed this idea of a reef ball project,
00:04:36:15and I really needed someone that had the capabilities
00:04:39:16of making them with me,
00:04:41:19deploying them with me,
00:04:42:22and monitoring them with me.
00:04:44:09MATT: Smooth these edges a little bit.
00:04:45:19SHAWN: The reef ball project is a real interesting project,
00:04:48:17and the basis of that
00:04:50:04is just making habitat for marine life.
00:04:53:10It’s simplistic and it works.
00:04:57:06A piece of concrete, hollow in the middle,
00:04:59:04all kinds of holes and nooks and crannies
00:05:01:06and everything attracts everything in the ocean.
00:05:03:16So if you have some kelp there,
00:05:05:05that’s gonna attract some fish or sea anemones,
00:05:08:01lobster, crabs.
00:05:10:14So as people build wharfs
00:05:12:11and take up more of the marine environment,
00:05:15:07the seafloor, the waterfront,
00:05:17:10fish need habitat.
00:05:21:01NARRATOR: Halifax Harbour
00:05:22:02is one of the busiest harbours in the world.
00:05:27:06It’s also home to wildlife
00:05:28:24like seals and minke whales
00:05:31:08and on the ocean floor,
00:05:32:15starfish, scallops and lobsters.
00:05:37:10But nearly 300 years of shipping, cruise boats,
00:05:41:00pleasure craft and pollution
00:05:42:16have had a devastating effect
00:05:44:00on the harbour’s eco-system.
00:05:49:01Over the past six years,
00:05:50:13the reef balls project created artificial habitats
00:05:53:19in five locations around the harbour,
00:05:56:02and deployed nearly 500 reef balls to date.
00:06:05:20GARY: We’re currently diving
00:06:07:08on the Bedford reef ball location.
00:06:09:00Go ahead, Oliver.
00:06:12:01NARRATOR: Today, Serena’s checking on one of the sites
00:06:14:13that’s most hostile to underwater growth.
00:06:19:10Serena and Dominion installed these reef balls
00:06:21:2418 months ago.
00:06:25:00GARY: So what was that again?
00:06:26:17SERENA: I would say I’m not hopeful
00:06:28:12to see a lot of life in this site.
00:06:31:03This is in a contaminated site and it’s very silty
00:06:34:11so not a lot of light gets penetrated,
00:06:36:05so there’s not a lot of growth.
00:06:38:06But I can always hope.
00:06:40:12OLIVER: And I’m working my way north again,
00:06:41:17and I’ve just find my first reef ball on the line.
00:06:43:21This one looks like it has
00:06:46:24around 95 percent coverage.
00:06:49:11Definitely all the sea life is starting to take hold.
00:06:51:10There’s a nice big starfish right there
00:06:53:04making this one home.
00:06:54:10SERENA: I’m so excited.
00:06:55:14We did not see this here last year.
00:06:57:06This is very good news.
00:06:58:20OLIVER: Next one in line,
00:07:00:16as you can see, this one is about…
00:07:02:07SERENA: That’s kelp!
00:07:03:14OLIVER: …75, maybe closer to 80, 85 percent.
00:07:06:20GARY: It’s good to see that it’s spreading.
00:07:08:00SERENA: It’s good, yeah.
00:07:08:18GARY: It’s got the grass on it as well,
00:07:10:21with the kelp, which is…
00:07:12:09and before they didn’t have that grass at all.
00:07:14:05SERENA: No, they had nothing but silt last year.
00:07:16:14GARY: So that might just be the start of…
00:07:17:21SERENA: Starting a colony, yeah.
00:07:20:09GARY: That one’s got a lot of marine growth on it.
00:07:22:17OLIVER: We’ve got a crab hanging out there,
00:07:24:00lots of kelp.
00:07:25:06SERENA: It’s better than I anticipated
00:07:27:02and it’s actually proving me wrong.
00:07:30:13OLIVER: This one here’s about 80 percent coverage.
00:07:32:21GARY: Oh boy, there you go.
00:07:35:16SERENA: I’m so excited.
00:07:37:00It means that plants are starting to colonize
00:07:39:02in this area,
00:07:40:09in this area that has always been very silty.
00:07:43:15The harbour is recovering.
00:07:47:03It’s happening. Yeah.
00:07:52:09OLIVER: This one’s got 85 percent as well.
00:07:59:06NARRATOR: Back at the shop,
00:08:00:05Serena needs to manufacture
00:08:01:19the last of 50 new reef balls
00:08:04:03with some extra muscle from LaRae.
00:08:06:23SERENA: So what we’re going to do is
00:08:07:23we’re probably just going to poke it first,
00:08:09:24and then we’ll see how much we need.
00:08:11:10NARRATOR: They need to get them out
00:08:12:19before the hurricane hits.
00:08:17:10SERENA: The next location for these reef balls
00:08:19:10will be out at Point Pleasant Park.
00:08:21:00It’s basically like a coral reef,
00:08:23:15is what we’re trying to mimic.
00:08:27:19So this is a reef ball mold.
00:08:29:14This is a mold that has been set up already.
00:08:32:00So we have the buoy balls at the bottom
00:08:34:01which create the larger holes
00:08:35:16on the base of the reef ball,
00:08:37:05and then in the center we have the bladder
00:08:39:05which creates the hollow center of the reef ball.
00:08:41:21NARRATOR: They’re repurposing old fishing buoys
00:08:44:10to make the reef balls,
00:08:46:00recycling trash to create wildlife habitats.
00:08:52:23SERENA: All right, you’re good.
00:08:55:02The concrete’s a marine grade
00:08:56:11and it has special micro-filaments in it.
00:09:00:17There’s a certain texture of the concrete
00:09:02:01that it has to be.
00:09:03:10It can’t be too dry, it can’t be too watery.
00:09:05:17SERENA: Can you shake it a little more?
00:09:10:00I don’t even think it needs this.
00:09:11:15Because that side is so empty.
00:09:15:23SERENA: If it’s too dry what will happen
00:09:18:08is it won’t actually make it to the bottom,
00:09:20:04so the holes will be open,
00:09:21:20versus like closed circles all the way around
00:09:24:15because of the buoy balls.
00:09:26:05LARAE: That’s weird.
00:09:27:05SERENA: What?
00:09:30:00I think it’s because it’s a little watery.
00:09:32:08LARAE: Yeah.
00:09:36:20SERENA: We need to fill the back side,
00:09:37:23because that side is still empty.
00:09:41:03What was that?
00:09:42:17Did you pop a ball?!
00:09:44:12LARAE: No, I didn’t pop a ball.
00:09:48:10SERENA: This is going to be a messed up one, I think.
00:09:51:03Is it raining?
00:09:52:05LARAE: Yup. Pour concrete day.
00:09:54:00[LAUGHTER]
00:09:56:02NARRATOR: The first hint of the approaching hurricane
00:09:58:06throws a wrench in the mix.
00:10:03:00The reef balls can’t be deployed yet.
00:10:05:07They need a day to cure before they can be exposed
00:10:07:09to the harsh North Atlantic.
00:10:11:00Meanwhile, out in the harbour,
00:10:12:21the biggest boats are gettin’ out
00:10:15:02while the gettin’s good.
00:10:16:18SHAWN: It sounds a bit backwards
00:10:19:00but the last thing you want to be
00:10:20:19is stuck in a harbour if you have a large vessel
00:10:23:00when a hurricane hits.
00:10:24:08You want to be out in the open ocean.
00:10:26:07Smaller vessels, you know, you have the mentality
00:10:28:11I have to run and hide.
00:10:29:17Well, the bigger ones, these vessels are so high,
00:10:31:22when that wind comes,
00:10:33:01it starts pushing them up on the dock,
00:10:34:12causing a lot of damage,
00:10:36:01it’s just a real mess.
00:10:37:21NARRATOR: In the open ocean,
00:10:39:10big boats can ride out the massive swells
00:10:42:00without crashing into anything.
00:10:44:12While many ships are leaving Halifax Harbour,
00:10:46:22Dominion needs to head back in.
00:10:56:00NARRATOR: The batch of reef balls are dried
00:10:58:10and ready to be dropped in place.
00:11:02:00CREW: These, they’re all nice here,
00:11:05:03and this one, the concrete didn’t sink down enough,
00:11:07:16there’s a big void in it, right here.
00:11:10:00NARRATOR: Perfect or not,
00:11:11:00these reef balls have to be mounted on the barge
00:11:14:02and then submerged underwater,
00:11:15:21all before  the beast of a storm
00:11:17:19tears into the harbour.
00:11:19:09º MUSIC º
00:11:36:15NARRATOR: There’s one day left
00:11:37:24until the hurricane slams into their home port.
00:11:41:04Dominion Diving is a storm of activity.
00:11:45:20ROBIN: There’s nothing that we can leave
00:11:49:00to chance.
00:11:50:10We’re going to do everything we can
00:11:52:00to get everything ready,
00:11:53:11to have it so that we can do what we’ve got to do.
00:11:56:20SHAWN: Today will be busy, a mad dash everywhere.
00:11:59:12The hurricane is coming up the coast now.
00:12:01:05Looking like almost a direct hit in Halifax.
00:12:04:10So you gotta lock everything in
00:12:06:01and just hunker down,
00:12:07:21make sure you’ve got everything fuelled up.
00:12:08:23All the boats are ready to go.
00:12:11:10We could be going off on a job
00:12:13:03in the middle of the night, saving a sinking vessel.
00:12:16:00So we’re super busy today.
00:12:17:12We’ve got the reef balls on the go.
00:12:19:00That’s kind of a priority. We’ve got to get them in.
00:12:22:00And then also this afternoon,
00:12:23:04we’ve had an emergency dry dock in Lunenburg.
00:12:27:11NARRATOR: To make matters worse,
00:12:28:23the next job means a two hour drive to Lunenburg,
00:12:32:23an historic town famous for shipbuilding.
00:12:35:14They’ve gotta secure a luxury yacht
00:12:37:06worth tens of millions of dollars.
00:12:40:05ROBIN: That is a boat that
00:12:41:09cannot go to sea in a hurricane,
00:12:44:05cannot stay tied to the dock in a hurricane.
00:12:47:00SHAWN: And they want to get it out of the water
00:12:48:11before the wind comes,
00:12:50:14so we’re gonna head down there,
00:12:52:08myself and the owner, Robin.
00:12:54:08We’ll fix their problem, we’ll get the vessel docked.
00:13:08:12NARRATOR: The yacht needs to be secured in this cradle
00:13:10:18before it can be hauled out.
00:13:13:07SHAWN: So that cradle, they’re going to
00:13:14:15lower that down in the water on chains,
00:13:17:00and that’s gonna go out in the harbour.
00:13:18:22And then we’re gonna put the vessel in.
00:13:22:10NARRATOR: Shawn and Robin’s job
00:13:24:06is to wedge the yacht in place
00:13:26:03so it doesn’t tip over.
00:13:30:00SHAWN: All that weight has to be distributed
00:13:31:20equally and evenly, and it’s quite a complex machine.
00:13:35:10There’s rollers underwater that roll on steel tracks.
00:13:39:00So we gotta make sure that there’s no debris there,
00:13:42:03’cause if there’s any debris in the way,
00:13:43:11the rollers could get stuck somewhere
00:13:45:07and then the cradle will actually
00:13:48:07roll off the rollers,
00:13:50:00and then we have what we call a train wreck underwater,
00:13:52:10which we don’t want today, especially with a storm coming.
00:13:57:20NARRATOR: Over on the barge with the reef balls,
00:14:00:20they gotta get the job done
00:14:02:13so they can get the barge back,
00:14:03:23and tied up before the storm comes.
00:14:07:04Each reef ball weighs as much as a grand piano,
00:14:10:20and all that mass will make the barge harder to secure
00:14:13:15and more dangerous during a hurricane.
00:14:20:10LARAE: A lot of these balls didn’t really turn out
00:14:22:04like we expected them to,
00:14:23:24and they’re heavier on the bottom
00:14:25:13and really thin on the top.
00:14:26:18So that’s  a lifting hazard and we gotta be careful
00:14:30:00of the divers in the water right,
00:14:31:02if something was to let go and break.
00:14:33:21I don’t know, the concrete was either too wet or too dry.
00:14:36:18It’s like really thin right here.
00:14:38:12Pretty crumbly.
00:14:40:08And if you look in, it’s really thick,
00:14:42:21it’s about that thick in the bottom,
00:14:44:19so that does pose a hazard to lifting it.
00:14:47:22If you were to put a strap around that there,
00:14:49:08that would definitely break,
00:14:51:14so we’ve gotta strap it from
00:14:52:20as close to the bottom as we can,
00:14:55:00and try to get it evenly strapped,
00:14:57:16and be very careful when we lift this one.
00:15:04:06GARY: Donnie, how close roughly,
00:15:05:20do you want to get to these buoys?
00:15:07:15Thirty feet off?
00:15:08:16NARRATOR: Twenty-four hours before the storm,
00:15:10:23Dorian has pushed a mass of warm air
00:15:13:04up from down south.
00:15:14:23It’s great for working, but it’s also a warning
00:15:17:16of what’s to come.
00:15:20:04GARY: So we stopped the barge, so we’re just waiting,
00:15:22:00we’re gonna get the crane barge in, tie it up,
00:15:23:18and then we’ll start setting some anchors.
00:15:27:21It’s definitely the calm before the storm.
00:15:29:10Yesterday morning it was blowing hard,
00:15:32:14’cause the wind was getting sucked out of the north
00:15:34:12from this storm, and then right now,
00:15:36:22we’re in the… not the eye,
00:15:39:17but the outer rim of the storm where you get that
00:15:41:23calm right before the storm.
00:15:44:15Which is the perfect time to do this kind of work,
00:15:46:20but you just have limited time
00:15:47:23before the wind starts coming up.
00:15:50:00GARY: So, did you let Kevin know
00:15:51:12to come in there, Donnie?
00:15:53:18DONNIE: Yeah, I was just talking to him.
00:15:57:00GARY: Okay, roger. We’re standing by.
00:16:02:16NARRATOR: The crane took longer than expected to arrive.
00:16:05:14The clock is counting down.
00:16:09:00Serena, the biologist in charge of the project,
00:16:11:21is anxious to get to work.
00:16:14:00SERENA: So we’re at Point Pleasant Park,
00:16:15:19just off Black Rock Beach.
00:16:17:09There is already 60 reef balls here at this site.
00:16:20:23We’re adding on the 50 reef balls to the site.
00:16:23:16We’re gonna hopefully have them
00:16:25:08attached to the reef that’s already there.
00:16:28:06NARRATOR: Gary’s having a hard time
00:16:29:15getting the barge in exactly the right spot
00:16:31:22to drop the reef balls.
00:16:34:00GARY: You see my problem is this anchor
00:16:36:04is not that way, so I can’t pull myself in,
00:16:38:06I can only pull myself sideways.
00:16:40:13SERENA: And we can’t move this barge?
00:16:43:00GARY: Well we can’t do anything unless we…
00:16:45:05oh yeah, I guess we can move that barge forward,
00:16:46:21but then we’re over our anchor lines.
00:16:48:15It might be all right.
00:16:51:10SERENA: Gary, why don’t we try that?
00:16:53:05Try swinging it around.
00:17:02:00LARAE: It’s noon.
00:17:03:03SERENA: It’s noon, and we haven’t started yet.
00:17:05:08LARAE: Nothing like working under pressure.
00:17:07:10SERENA: I can feel the crunch today,
00:17:09:01and I think it’s also because of Dorian coming.
00:17:11:20But this is also a job that needs to be done.
00:17:15:18Once I put these in, I need measurements
00:17:18:01for the Coast Guard, for Transport Canada,
00:17:20:03for navigational waters. I need the measurement
00:17:22:08of the reef ball to the surface of the water,
00:17:24:12the GPS coordinates, that’s for boaters.
00:17:27:13That’s something you need right away
00:17:29:11once you put any structure down in the ocean.
00:17:33:00NARRATOR: Two hours behind schedule
00:17:34:16and they’re still doing last minute preparations.
00:17:37:18The crane and barge are finally in position
00:17:40:23to begin offloading the reef balls,
00:17:43:08and the clock is ticking down.
00:17:48:01How are they going to get all this done
00:17:49:18before Hurricane Dorian
00:17:51:06hits them straight in the reef balls.
00:17:58:01NARRATOR: After tearing up the Carolinas,
00:18:00:00Hurricane Dorian will slam into Atlantic Canada
00:18:03:07in less than 24 hours.
00:18:06:08SHAWN: Currently they’re expecting 22 meter seas.
00:18:09:20We’ve got to get the reef balls done,
00:18:11:06get the barges back here
00:18:12:10and then tie everything,
00:18:13:15secure all our barges,
00:18:14:11the crane barge, the flat deck barge.
00:18:17:01We have some stuff on the mooring
00:18:18:17we’re gonna take in, lock it all together,
00:18:19:24tie it all together on the wharf.
00:18:25:22NARRATOR: Meanwhile, after several hours of work,
00:18:29:02Dominion hasn’t even installed
00:18:31:05half of the reef balls.
00:18:33:19SERENA: There they are. Those are the new ones.
00:18:37:15GARY: Gavin, do you want to lower it down a little closer,
00:18:39:08then that way once it’s… we’re gonna spring back.
00:18:42:19SERENA: Alongside each other with at least
00:18:43:20two meters space in between,
00:18:45:05because we’re trying to create
00:18:46:11a perimeter around each reef ball to create habitat.
00:18:51:10GARY: Look at that spacing, Boots!
00:18:53:02That’s like perfect.
00:18:54:16LARAE: That one, that one, that one and that one.
00:18:57:23NARRATOR: Time is running out.
00:19:00:00The deformed reef balls are slowing things down
00:19:03:11and making the operation dangerous.
00:19:06:00LARAE: I don’t want to get underneath it.
00:19:18:14LARAE: Come down.
00:19:21:12We’ll have to re-sling this one.
00:19:23:00NARRATOR: They’ve got to be careful
00:19:24:06rigging up for the lift.
00:19:25:23If the deformed concrete gives way,
00:19:28:03a reef ball weighing as much as a horse
00:19:30:03could come crashing down onto the deck
00:19:32:19and anyone working on it.
00:19:36:00It’s dangerous underwater too.
00:19:39:10DIVER: Okay, up on the wire.
00:19:41:01GARY: Roger, coming up on the wire.
00:19:50:07NARRATOR: Things are going smoothly underwater,
00:19:52:20but up in the sky, dark clouds are gathering.
00:19:56:15The storm is getting closer.
00:19:58:09SERENA: The storm just started.
00:20:00:06LARAE: Yeah, that is… that’s happening.
00:20:02:07SERENA: I can feel it.
00:20:03:22There’s more waves, it’s not flat, it’s not calm any more.
00:20:06:06LARAE: A lot more wind.
00:20:07:10SERENA: Yeah, definitely.
00:20:09:10SERENA: It could be very serious.
00:20:14:07LARAE: Yeah. It’s here.
00:20:17:01Donnie said all the Navy ships
00:20:18:13are coming out of the harbour,
00:20:19:16seeking shelter.
00:20:21:10SERENA: We’ve got two more drops to go,
00:20:23:23with two little ones, and then we should be set.
00:20:28:15SERENA: Careful of that one, LaRae!
00:20:31:20SERENA: Oooo!
00:20:34:00SERENA: Okay!
00:20:34:15LARAE: I’ll get ‘er up on this side.
00:20:36:10SERENA: Here we go!
00:20:38:06NARRATOR: In spite of all their setbacks,
00:20:40:07they’re able to safely finish
00:20:41:19before the weather takes a dangerous turn.
00:20:49:10NARRATOR: Two hours away in Lunenburg…
00:20:51:23SHAWN: All right. We have to get started here.
00:20:54:04NARRATOR: …Robin and Shawn are impatient
00:20:55:12to begin their part of the job.
00:20:58:06The preparations for the yacht’s dry dock
00:21:01:01have been going slower than expected.
00:21:04:05ROBIN: Right on time.
00:21:10:00NARRATOR: Finally, the cradle is ready
00:21:11:19to be rolled out into the ocean
00:21:13:16and secured under the yacht.
00:21:16:00SHAWN: So were going out, we’re a few hours late,
00:21:17:19we’re about three hours later than what we wanted to.
00:21:21:07We still have some light, some sunshine,
00:21:23:06but we’re gonna lose that around seven o’clock.
00:21:24:20It’s starting to get dark in the water already.
00:21:28:05NARRATOR: They need to get in the water
00:21:29:21before it gets too dark to see what they’re doing.
00:21:33:12If they make a mistake wedging the yacht in place,
00:21:35:21they could damage the multi million dollar dream boat.
00:21:40:06SHAWN: So what’s happening now, is the cradle’s going out
00:21:42:24probably to where the boat is
00:21:44:09to get enough water depth over the keel blocks,
00:21:46:16and the guys up on the footboards
00:21:48:22at the top of the cradle,
00:21:50:10they’ll grab the lines fairly quick and tie them off
00:21:54:14so he doesn’t blow into the side of the cradle.
00:22:00:24NARRATOR: After hours of delay,
00:22:03:00the yacht is safely in its cradle,
00:22:04:21and it’s time for Shawn and Robin to get wet.
00:22:09:10They’ve gotta dive down to make the final adjustments
00:22:12:05moving blocks and wedging the yacht into place.
00:22:17:15SHAWN: Normally we use hat and hose, the diver’s
00:22:19:16attached to an umbilical leading to the surface.
00:22:22:17This time we’re gonna use scuba.
00:22:24:11Scuba is actually the safer approach,
00:22:27:01because the biggest part is getting trapped
00:22:30:15or caught up in moving chains
00:22:32:15that will just catch your umbilical
00:22:35:06and cut it.
00:22:37:13NARRATOR: With so many moving parts,
00:22:39:12it’s a dangerous job.
00:22:41:18Only for the most experienced divers.
00:22:45:15WORKER: Okay, we have two divers in the water approaching
00:22:50:06º MUSIC º
00:23:01:14NARRATOR: It’s taken all day to get this far.
00:23:05:00It’s almost nine o’clock.
00:23:06:20They’re running out of daylight.
00:23:09:09Visibility under the water is dwindling.
00:23:15:14Shawn and Robin finally make it out.
00:23:18:10SHAWN: Man, that water is some friggin’ warm.
00:23:21:01ROBIN: Too warm. Oh, it’s too warm.
00:23:23:11NARRATOR: A sign of bad things to come,
00:23:25:07the water is unusually warm,
00:23:27:19which means the hurricane could increase in power
00:23:30:09as it approaches the shore.
00:23:33:19ROBIN: I lost a little bit of fuckin’ sweat,
00:23:36:06I’ll tell you that. Man, that water’s warm.
00:23:38:15SHAWN: That’s what we were saying.
00:23:40:00ROBIN: Like really warm.
00:23:49:11ROBIN: That went really good.
00:23:50:20It’s a complicated hull.
00:23:51:10It’s got all kinds of appendages
00:23:53:16and different contours and things like that.
00:23:56:14SHAWN: Yeah it was good. All those blocks fit and it was…
00:24:00:08I was surprised actually because of the geometry.
00:24:04:10ROBIN: We got full bearing on everything,
00:24:07:00and there you go.
00:24:08:06She’s up there safe and sound, ready for the hurricane.
00:24:11:06[CHUCKLES]
00:24:15:01ROBIN: Oh red sky at night.
00:24:16:15Except it’s wrong.
00:24:18:17SHAWN: It’s supposed to be sailor’s delight.
00:24:20:14ROBIN: Red sky at night
00:24:21:20and we’ve got a hurricane tomorrow.
00:24:27:03º MUSIC º
00:24:38:10NARRATOR: The biggest storm in decades
00:24:40:07is about to smash
00:24:42:04Dominion Diving’s home harbour.
00:24:46:20MATT: Hurricane Dorian hammered the hell out of the Bahamas,
00:24:50:05and now it’s gonna hit Nova Scotia.
00:24:52:19Right now, the winds,
00:24:54:19they’re predicting anywhere between
00:24:56:13110 to 160 kilometers an hour.
00:24:59:17Last report I heard, it’s actually gonna
00:25:01:09bounce around 180 or more.
00:25:04:20You’ve got such a massive storm surge,
00:25:07:00it’s gonna push the elevation of the water
00:25:09:00really high.
00:25:11:06NARRATOR: Even before the storm hits,
00:25:13:00those winds push so much water,
00:25:15:13the sea level can swell
00:25:17:00by the height of a two storey building.
00:25:20:04MATT: This is usually like way, way up.
00:25:25:00So now, the storm surge keeps coming,
00:25:28:00it could go right off it.
00:25:30:00Looks like we got about five feet left
00:25:34:00and we’re just getting started with the hurricane
00:25:35:05at this moment.
00:25:36:10They say it’s supposed to hit around
00:25:37:14four or five o’clock tonight.
00:25:39:22Right now it’s noontime, a little after noon.
00:25:42:21So we’ve still got five more hours for this thing
00:25:45:08to start working its way up towards us.
00:25:53:00MATT: The city right now is going to get a hammering
00:25:55:05’cause right now, this time of year
00:25:56:18is a bad time for a hurricane to hit us,
00:25:58:17’cause all the trees and plants are in full bloom.
00:26:01:13So all those leaves are acting like
00:26:02:21a huge sail of a vessel,
00:26:04:22a huge fetch for all that energy,
00:26:06:23all that force to be pushing against it
00:26:08:21and that can topple trees.
00:26:10:10That can rip things apart.
00:26:15:20MATT: There’s a huge potential for a lot of destruction.
00:26:19:04Our boats are ready to go.
00:26:21:01They’re fuelled up, they’re plugged in.
00:26:23:11Our team are on standby.
00:26:25:04We’ve gotta be able to perform at any point in time.
00:26:27:13Like right now, if someone called us in distress,
00:26:29:18we’d mitigate the risk, but for the most part,
00:26:33:19we’re able to launch our vessels with a proper team,
00:26:36:20to make sure that we can go out there
00:26:38:09and safely activate a rescue procedure to help somebody.
00:26:43:13Now, if there’s a ship that’s sunk,
00:26:45:18they’re gonna have to wait until after the hurricane.
00:26:47:17But if there’s a life at risk,
00:26:49:12we’re there. We’re gonna go for it.
00:26:53:10But right now,
00:26:54:19we’re gonna let the storm do its thing
00:26:57:10and see what destruction comes for us tomorrow.
00:27:01:21º MUSIC º
00:27:14:17NARRATOR: All their vessels and gear
00:27:15:22roped and secured, the Dominion dive team
00:27:18:19hunkers down to wait out the hurricane.
00:27:23:03Matt decides to brave the storm
00:27:24:20onboard his personal boat “The Mattador”.
00:27:29:01MATT: We got the storm surge happening now.
00:27:30:19About a seven, eight foot storm surge.
00:27:33:11The reason why I’m on the boat
00:27:34:10is if things go to hell, the docks start tearing apart,
00:27:37:15I can just engage the engines
00:27:40:00and drive over stuff and get out of here.
00:27:42:24I’ll go out into the harbour. I have no problem with that.
00:27:48:00NARRATOR: Here comes Hurricane Dorian.
00:27:52:01155 kilometer an hour winds
00:27:55:15push water up onshore.
00:28:01:20A storm surge 15 meters high.
00:28:16:16[SIRENS]
00:28:22:00NARRATOR: The winds crumple a construction crane
00:28:24:05shutting down city streets for blocks.
00:28:35:10NARRATOR: The next morning, the cold light of day
00:28:37:23reveals the true toll of Dorian’s destruction.
00:28:42:24The City of Halifax is devastated.
00:28:46:05Half a million people without electricity
00:28:48:18from power lines ripped apart by falling trees,
00:28:52:01but miraculously, no lives were lost.
00:28:56:09SHAWN: We made it through the hurricane.
00:28:59:00The eye went right over top of us in Halifax/Dartmouth.
00:29:02:00Halifax had some damage.
00:29:04:00Dartmouth got off not too bad.
00:29:07:05We do have power here this morning.
00:29:09:03A lot of places don’t have power.
00:29:11:02Most of the city actually doesn’t have power,
00:29:13:10so we’re lucky we’re up and running.
00:29:16:00All our assets are fine, safe and sound.
00:29:18:05That’s not the case with everybody.
00:29:19:17Cell phone service was down for 12 hours,
00:29:22:11so we’re just expecting here in the next couple of days
00:29:25:04what will happen now that the storm has passed.
00:29:27:11People will get in contact with their insurance
00:29:29:10agents and brokers,
00:29:31:10and then they’ll be calling for pricing
00:29:33:12to salvage this boat or that boat
00:29:36:16or whatever may have sunk.
00:29:39:08Several vessels did sink.
00:29:41:05Some marinas let go and all the dock systems.
00:29:46:00NARRATOR: One man’s crisis is another man’s opportunity.
00:29:49:14Thanks to Dorian’s destruction,
00:29:51:24Dominion Diving is in high demand.
00:29:57:03They’ve got the divers, the hauling power,
00:29:59:17all the equipment to help rebuild Halifax Harbour.
00:30:04:04GARY: It’s being pulled out of the ground.
00:30:07:06NARRATOR: The biggest job is hauling up a barge
00:30:09:13that Hurricane Dorian smashed and sunk.
00:30:13:20ROBIN: It was a barge tied up in Halifax,
00:30:16:20and the storm surge beat the barge against the dock,
00:30:20:01despite all the fendering and ropes and everything
00:30:22:02that they had put in place to counteract that,
00:30:25:04and it damaged the barge somehow
00:30:27:04to where water came in and it sunk.
00:30:33:22DAVE: And you’re gonna pull it nice and tight.
00:30:36:05I’ll let you know when it’s good.
00:30:37:18ROBIN: We don’t show up here prepared to not win,
00:30:41:15so we’ll run down through all of our protocols
00:30:44:17and procedures that we set up,
00:30:46:06until the barge is floating on the surface of the water.
00:30:48:24DIVER: Yeah, I see another crack right there.
00:30:50:18DAVE: Did you find your crack?
00:30:52:05DIVER: It’s not the crack, but it’s a crack.
00:30:54:04DAVE: Yeah, copy that.
00:30:58:12SHAWN: The barge, it’s kinda hanging
00:31:00:18on a 30 degree angle from one single line,
00:31:04:18so the guys have to be really careful
00:31:05:20when they go around the barge
00:31:07:04that line doesn’t let go.
00:31:09:00Obviously, there’s some issues if the barge moves
00:31:11:05while the divers are down there.
00:31:16:10DAVE: Beauty, bud.
00:31:18:24Basically when we were swimming around
00:31:21:07we could see that there was about an inch by an inch hole
00:31:23:20in one end of the barge,
00:31:25:18so we basically made up this small patch
00:31:31:20with some washers, a piece of bent threaded rod,
00:31:34:10for something that can hold it in place,
00:31:36:10and then the neoprene should just seal up the hole.
00:31:40:16NARRATOR: With the hole temporarily patched,
00:31:42:18the barge can now be lifted to the water’s surface.
00:31:47:02The Dominion crew needs to pump out
00:31:48:1930 tonnes of excess water.
00:31:51:22That will take all night.
00:31:57:17Then somehow, they’ve got to get it
00:31:59:16across the harbour to a metal shop for inspection.
00:32:03:00DAVE: She’s going the right way.
00:32:05:20ROBIN: Oh yes, boy!
00:32:08:10DAVE: She’s floating.
00:32:12:10NARRATOR: There are two possible routes
00:32:14:05to the metal shop.
00:32:16:00One by road, the other by water.
00:32:19:05ROBIN: The problem with
00:32:20:07a lot of things that float,
00:32:21:13especially barges, is they’re big.
00:32:23:11This thing is 60 feet long
00:32:25:18and 30 feet wide.
00:32:27:13So road transport is not an option
00:32:31:14in any way, shape or form,
00:32:33:13so this is the only way this is gonna happen,
00:32:36:18is by movement across the water.
00:32:39:24There is an element of risk
00:32:41:03to take it across the shipping lanes
00:32:42:13and water reaches depths of almost a hundred feet.
00:32:45:05If the barge were to sink
00:32:47:03in transit across the harbour,
00:32:50:00that would be a complete disaster.
00:32:53:18NARRATOR: How are they gonna tow the massive leaky barge
00:32:56:00across a busy harbour
00:32:57:12without the whole thing going down
00:33:00:06like a ton of bricks?
00:33:05:00NARRATOR: This 90-tonne barge took a beat down
00:33:07:24from Hurricane Dorian.
00:33:09:20Dominion Diving spent the whole night
00:33:11:19raising it out of the water.
00:33:13:17Now they’ve gotta tow it to a metal shop for repairs.
00:33:21:11It’s a two boat operation,
00:33:23:14one tug to push, the other to keep a watchful eye
00:33:26:17in case something goes dangerously wrong.
00:33:30:00GARY: I’m just here as a support vessel now,
00:33:33:16and also a dive vessel if worst comes to worst
00:33:38:00and we need to do a dive on this.
00:33:46:09And we’re just hoping that our patches hold,
00:33:50:01’cause the barge is pretty rusty and crusty.
00:34:04:15GARY: That list is a bad thing
00:34:06:10because it looks like it might be taking on
00:34:08:01a little more water as we’re heading over.
00:34:10:14So we’re just keeping an eye on it,
00:34:11:16make sure she doesn’t go down on us.
00:34:20:00NARRATOR: If the patches don’t hold,
00:34:21:22the barge goes back down to the bottom.
00:34:27:18GARY: We gotta use caution ’cause anything can happen
00:34:30:07and usually when it does in the marine environment,
00:34:31:22it happens really quick.
00:34:39:10GARY: We’re just at the mouth of the harbour here now,
00:34:41:07where there’s a swell
00:34:42:07which isn’t helping us at all either.
00:34:43:19It just starts rocking the barge back and forth,
00:34:46:09and then that starts shifting stuff inside.
00:34:48:20It could poke potential other holes.
00:34:51:08So right now if it was to go down,
00:34:53:23this is like the absolute worst spot.
00:34:56:00This is right through the main shipping lanes
00:34:59:00of Halifax Harbour.
00:35:00:12So if it went down here, we wouldn’t be able
00:35:02:10to recover it very easily
00:35:04:20and it would just be… it’s just all bad.
00:35:09:05NARRATOR: It’s slow going.
00:35:11:07What should be a 15 minute journey,
00:35:13:07takes more than an hour.
00:35:21:12Finally, the barge makes it to the other side.
00:35:24:23Now Dominion’s gotta get it out of the water
00:35:27:15and up onto blocks.
00:35:30:04Robin’s here to coordinate the effort.
00:35:33:10ROBIN: There’s two cables that come up from each side.
00:35:35:00CREW: Yeah.
00:35:35:23ROBIN: They have to pass through a block this way.
00:35:37:12CREW: Right.
00:35:38:04ROBIN: If you hook it up the other way,
00:35:39:05the barge will flip over.
00:35:40:14CREW: Okay, got it.
00:35:41:12ROBIN: That’s really important.
00:35:44:01I think the total weight here is 90 tonnes.
00:35:46:00CREW: Okay.
00:35:47:19ROBIN: Everything’s critical here.
00:35:49:01The rigging’s gotta be done the exact way
00:35:51:16that it was planned, and it’s all engineered.
00:35:53:20These things can go different ways.
00:35:57:07There’s a lot of weight here.
00:35:58:23There’s a lot of equipment.
00:36:00:21There’s a lot of elevated levels of risk.
00:36:05:20ROBIN: Watch your foot, Christian.
00:36:08:00Hey Guillaume, watch your foot under the hook.
00:36:14:23ROBIN: That’s not going to work.
00:36:29:00ROBIN: Everything you do, everything is big, heavy,
00:36:32:11things are unpredictable.
00:36:35:20ROBIN: Just watch out,
00:36:36:19because these slings are going to travel.
00:36:40:00ROBIN: You can plan it all out,
00:36:41:19and then the curveballs start coming at ya
00:36:43:24and you gotta throw them back.
00:36:45:17And make sure you don’t put assets, cranes,
00:36:49:11people or anything at risk, right?
00:36:51:04You gotta keep that as a priority.
00:37:05:20NARRATOR: Now that the barge is level,
00:37:07:06the Dominion team can pump out the remaining residual water
00:37:11:02to lighten up the load for the cranes,
00:37:13:21clear the deck and make way for the barge’s final lift.
00:37:19:05ROBIN: With the two cranes, it’s called a tandem lift,
00:37:21:17because they have to make
00:37:23:02multiple simultaneous movements.
00:37:24:11They’re lifting it up,
00:37:26:01then they’re coming in towards one another,
00:37:27:05so to do that they have to change boom angles
00:37:30:04and articulate everything the whole time,
00:37:32:00so that the slings stay exactly parallel.
00:37:34:02It’s a pretty articulated movement.
00:37:35:20NARRATOR: The most crucial part of the whole operation
00:37:38:13is about to begin.
00:37:42:11ROBIN: While we’re doing this heavy lift,
00:37:43:20just stay out of the line of fire.
00:37:46:07Just don’t stand under crane booms
00:37:48:01and different things like that.
00:37:50:03So you look at where a boom is going to fall if it falls,
00:37:52:19and you don’t hang out there, that’s all.
00:37:56:18It’s all bad when this stuff happens.
00:37:59:00It’s not good.
00:38:02:20ROBIN: They got her now. It’s out of the water.
00:38:04:22It’s about two feet clear of the water,
00:38:06:10so they’ve got the full weight of it.
00:38:10:18ROBIN: Try to keep it as level as you can.
00:38:12:10There we go.
00:38:15:04º MUSIC º
00:38:29:20ROBIN: Quite often with the hurricanes,
00:38:31:15there’s wave action, but it’s the storm surge
00:38:34:13that causes all the trouble.
00:38:36:13Wind direction is what got this.
00:38:38:15It came out of the east and it blew right in,
00:38:40:17right where this barge was docked,
00:38:42:19so unfortunately it was just in the wrong place
00:38:44:16during the storm
00:38:46:06and it got beat up against the wharf
00:38:47:21and it ended up sunk.
00:38:51:15NARRATOR: It’ll be up to the barges owners
00:38:53:07to decide whether it’ll be fixed
00:38:55:14or sold for scrap.
00:38:57:19Once the barge is up on blocks,
00:38:59:16Dominion’s work is done.
00:39:02:19ROBIN: This is our business, right?
00:39:03:23Like hurricanes are just one part of it.
00:39:05:23You don’t have to have a hurricane
00:39:08:06to have wind damage or things sink.
00:39:11:09Sooner or later, you’re gonna run into an issue
00:39:14:17with water coming in when you don’t want it to,
00:39:17:12and if you’re not there to catch it,
00:39:19:07then you end up like this.
00:39:21:10º MUSIC º
00:39:32:20ROBIN: We’re touched down on the blocks here so,
00:39:35:09all the risk, all the mitigations,
00:39:37:11everything we put in place, everything worked,
00:39:39:13everything went according to plan,
00:39:41:17and here we are.
00:39:44:04This is the trophy. [CHUCKLES]
00:39:49:15NARRATOR: It’s been a week since Hurricane Dorian
00:39:51:19blew into town,
00:39:53:13kicked everyone’s ass,
00:39:55:06and left Dominion to clean up the mess.
00:39:58:03They’ve been busy ever since.
00:40:05:08SERENA: This is what it looks like right now.
00:40:07:04So this is the existing reef ball formation,
00:40:09:18and then we just added onto it.
00:40:11:10NARRATOR: It’s eight weeks before they get a chance
00:40:13:21to check in on Serena’s artificial reef.
00:40:17:15GARY: We’re gonna go to Point Pleasant Park,
00:40:19:09where we just installed the reef balls
00:40:22:22just before the hurricane,
00:40:24:05so we’ll head over there and see how they made out.
00:40:36:05SERENA: Because it’s an open site,
00:40:38:00so there’s not a lot of shelter.
00:40:38:22There is a potential for movement
00:40:40:23due to the recent hurricane that we had.
00:40:42:21So fingers crossed that nothing’s moved.
00:40:47:00NARRATOR: Before they inspect the 50 reef balls
00:40:49:05installed before the hurricane,
00:40:51:03they want to check on 60 older ones.
00:40:54:00to see how the marine life living on them
00:40:56:10weathered the storm.
00:40:58:20SERENA: Yeah, if I could get a total scan
00:41:00:05of the layer cake, and if you could zoom in
00:41:02:06to see if there’s any life in the layers.
00:41:05:11CHRISTIAN: Yeah, so a couple of starfish,
00:41:07:13those little fish,
00:41:08:14you’ve got some kelp growing in there,
00:41:10:06but other than that, I’m not seeing
00:41:11:20a whole lot of marine life.
00:41:16:24GARY: These almost look just the same as the ones at…
00:41:19:08SERENA: I know.
00:41:20:23GARY: …like they don’t even look that great.
00:41:22:03SERENA: No. I know.
00:41:23:15GARY: We’ve seen this before
00:41:24:21where there’s quite a bit more kelp.
00:41:27:09SERENA: Compared to previous years, yes.
00:41:29:03In June, when I was diving this formation,
00:41:32:00they were connected.
00:41:33:18You couldn’t see where one began and one finished.
00:41:36:22It was beautiful.
00:41:38:18GARY: But this is also an area
00:41:40:10that would have been getting hit hard by the hurricane,
00:41:42:12so it maybe it may have pulled some of the kelp off.
00:41:45:17SERENA: This site should be better
00:41:48:10than the sites in the Basin,
00:41:50:15due to the fact that it’s in the mouth of the harbour
00:41:53:21therefore, there’s not a lot of contaminants here
00:41:56:22versus the other sites.
00:41:58:11GARY: Like here there was
00:41:59:1610 to 15 foot swells, so I mean,
00:42:03:03at some points these were probably totally exposed,
00:42:05:14and so then you just have a wall of water
00:42:07:12just pulling all that kelp, right?
00:42:10:10It would have took a beating.
00:42:12:02SERENA: I mean, they’re still productive.
00:42:13:15But there should still be a lot more kelp on them
00:42:15:16than there is now.
00:42:16:20GARY: We’ve seen better.
00:42:20:10CHRISTIAN: It looks like I’m coming up
00:42:21:15to the new ones here.
00:42:23:08GARY: Yeah, they definitely are looking like a new one.
00:42:26:20DIVER: Looks like it’s sitting nice and good
00:42:28:15on the top there. It doesn’t look like it’s moved at all.
00:42:31:05SERENA: They didn’t move. GARY: Yeah.
00:42:32:13SERENA: And that’s what I was worried about actually.
00:42:35:10SERENA: These were designed to withstand
00:42:37:20hurricane-style weather conditions,
00:42:41:09and so they have not moved,
00:42:43:04which is a really good sign.
00:42:45:00CHRISTIAN: It still looks pretty dead,
00:42:46:18and we have a starfish hanging out on this one here.
00:42:49:00SERENA: Oh, there’s more crabs.
00:42:50:08CHRISTIAN: Yeah, we’ve got a crab moving in there
00:42:51:14to hopefully make a home.
00:42:53:13GARY: Golf ball?
00:42:55:05CHRISTIAN: Somebody got a hole in one.
00:42:56:14[LAUGHTER]
00:42:58:15GARY: Oh, can you look at that little fishy?
00:43:02:13CHRISTIAN: Yeah, we’ve got a little fish hanging out here.
00:43:04:09GARY: Yeah, it’s probably a baby sculpin.
00:43:06:14CHRISTIAN: Yeah, I’d say it’s a sculpin.
00:43:13:21SERENA: My view on that site is
00:43:15:12it’s not as good as it could have been
00:43:17:09due to the hurricane.
00:43:19:00A little disappointed with the lack of plant life
00:43:21:13on the offshore ends of some of the formations.
00:43:24:11But the new reef balls that are there,
00:43:26:17the 50 that we deployed in September,
00:43:28:21are looking actually amazing
00:43:31:09for the amount of time that they’re down there for.
00:43:33:16They have algae growth on there already.
00:43:35:13They have crabs, they have starfish,
00:43:39:16we even saw some sculpins.
00:43:41:18So it balanced my reaction
00:43:46:04because of the new growth that is on the new reef balls.
00:43:51:05To me, it proves that it’s doing what it’s supposed to do.
00:43:54:10I’m trying to recreate fish habitat in areas that
00:43:57:16not necessarily were thought to even have any
00:44:00:21to begin with.
00:44:02:17A hundred percent success.
00:44:08:18ROBIN: This is the largest storm we’ve had in 15 years.
00:44:11:09It was a Category 2 hurricane,
00:44:13:00with winds up to 155 kilometers an hour.
00:44:16:10There was a lot of boats sunk, wharfs damaged,
00:44:19:11we had waves that were up to 50 feet in height.
00:44:24:05Dominion Diving is 50 years old.
00:44:26:09We didn’t sustain any damage
00:44:27:24to any of our equipment during this storm.
00:44:30:05That’s because everyday we get a little smarter,
00:44:32:15every single day.
00:44:33:18º MUSIC º
00:44:39:10SHAWN: We weathered the storm.
00:44:40:22Prevention on the front end was good.
00:44:43:07We were able to get the reef balls all deployed.
00:44:45:23Successfully run down to Lunenburg,
00:44:48:12dock the mega yacht.
00:44:49:20She weathered the storm fine, no damage at all.
00:44:52:15And then we’ve just wrapped up the final phase
00:44:54:21of a barge salvage.
00:44:58:15We were successful on all three fronts.
00:45:01:15Now it’s time just to take a little bit of time,
00:45:03:20a couple of hours,
00:45:05:10and phew, good, all right,
00:45:08:10rested and ready to go onto the next.
00:45:13:08ROBIN: These type of events, they just elevate
00:45:14:21the amount of work that we’re doing all at once.
00:45:16:19So we’re inundated,
00:45:18:22slammed, all hands on deck.
00:45:21:00This is what you signed up for,
00:45:22:11and this is part of the deal.
00:45:24:21And a hurricane’s not gonna slow us down.
