    BUILDING A RESTAURANT IN THE NORTH SEA IS NO EASY TASK. BUT BUILDING A RESTAURANT?

  • Description

    BUILDING A RESTAURANT IN THE NORTH SEA IS NO EASY TASK. BUT BUILDING A RESTAURANT IN "DRY-DOCK" CAN BE DONE A LOT EASIER AND SO DUTCH ENGINEERS CONTRIVED THIS NOVEL METHOD OF PUTTING A RESTAURANT OUT IN THE NORTH SEA ON THE END OF A PIER: THEY BUILT IT IN DRY-DOCK AND THEN TOWED IT INTO POSITION.

    THE RESTAURANT WAS SPECIALLY BUILT ON A PLATFORM WHICH IS NOW MOUNTED ON LEGS PLACED ON THE SEA-BED. THE 1100 TON STRUCTURE WAS TOWED INTO POSITION YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) BY THE TUG "SCHOUWENBAND".

    SO COMPLETE IS THE RESTAURANT, NOW IN POSITION, THAT WITHIN TWO WEEKS IT WILL BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. THE RESTAURANT HAS TO BARS AND STANDING AS IT DOES, A FEW FEET ABOVE THE SEA, WILL AFFORD AN ATTRACTIVE PLACE TO DINE.
