Mobile Bay Oil Rig

This is the closest I have ever been to an oil rig in the open water. They were all over the Mobile Bay and our ferry came by this one fairly close to get a close look. Of course it lasted only maybe for one or two minutes as we were moving pretty fast. It looks like this type of rig is operated without any humans, or maybe it is dry by now and it just seats there till they take it away. No idea.
