I’m upset that you didn’t mention Dicky Deats. Get the real story from his kids or brother, Danyi, Jerry or Jerry. Legend has it that Dicky didn’t want to see the camera boat wake in Jaws, but his DP didn’t get the job. He made a crane that was portable and rideable. Look up Dicky on YouTube for a short bio film.

He got a technical achievement Oscar for it, I believe the only grip ever to get a statue.

No history of the crane is complete without his contribution, I hope you agree.
