KSS Ocean Master was designed as a realistic utility vehicle for KSP. The crane is limited to a load of around 3 tons but with proper weight balancing and a small reaction wheel upgrade, the crane’s lifting power could be increased. The crane on this ship is a lower part count version of the Katyusha Rocket Launcher Truck design. It utilizes the Free Pivot option on the crane claw to form a ball-joint type of hinge. Set the crane down by staging, and control from the obvious probe core for correct navball orientation

WHEN DOCKING THE CRANE FOR TRAVELING, never dock while in Free Pivot mode. Instead, adjust crane to correct pitch, lock Free Pivot, then rotate to correct dock position. Even when doing this correct dock procedure, you run a chance of explosion on the next undock, but it works most of the time.
