World's Toughest Fixes 50-Ton Rudder

Riley heads to a divers' paradise in Curaçao, but this underwater adventure is no vacation. He and a team of top-notch industrial divers are in for some serious heavy lifting – rigging and removing a 50-ton rudder from a massive iron ore carrier bound for China. Riley's a master rigger on land, but on this job he's a fish out of water. Running against the clock, with millions at stake, this is one the biggest underwater repair jobs ever attempted.
