loadout of a tower structure onto the H851 launch barge. The barge while
in loadout position, located perpendicular to KOS' bulkhead, will have
its bow blocking the La Quinta Channel (affecting Oxychem Ingleside and
DuPont), thus requiring closure.
Keiwit will be turning the H#851 into position for loading the Belize
Tower.

8 hours to turn and position the barge
24 hours to pull cable strands
24-36 hours to load tower
