Moving The SS President Steamship: America's Largest Steamboat | Huge Moves | Spark

This Week On Huge Moves -Heavy Hauler Jeremy Patterson faces the titanic task of hauling one of America’s largest and most famous steamships, the SS President, almost 100 miles across sea and land in St Louis. His original plan - to haul the 100metre longship on a bed of over 80 wheels by road - is thwarted when it proves impossible to pull the ship out of the Mississippi.

This leaves him with the enormous challenge of slicing and dicing the ship into pieces using blow-torches and cranes. Strong gusts and winter blizzards make the task increasingly hazardous. Once all the pieces make it to the town of St Elmo, Jeremy must re-assemble the giant jigsaw puzzle in the middle of the town and transform it into a hotel. Will all the pieces fit back together?
