When the tide is in you will have no effective footing for your towers. Precious little on sand in any event. I think you might try to achieve a connected, united footing structure that ties the structures together. I am not even sure this would work. I suggest to get with a good theatrical engineer (ie: Geiger Engineering) and work through this. You still have time to bail this out, but the current plan sounds too scary - for even me.

Worry about the couterweight you put into the tower. Make sure all scaf connections are saved and cannot be removed by the tide. Grounding the whole constructing is the same as normal since 3/4 is exposed at low tide but I would't worry about this. The movement of the tide would worry me much more. You need to anchor everything. The pounding force of the water is incredible. Thightening is everyting.
Enjoy the life on the beach.

Subject: Huge Show in Hawaii on May 31st, 2010(Live 50,000 attd., satellite Broadcast, Internet,Live Local Broadcast + all the usual stuff, sound,lights,staging,etc...)

I'm looking at plans in front of me which shows 50% of all the scaff towers buit in the ocean, depending on the tide......they will be totally exposed when low...and 3'-5' submerged when it will hit high tide!
Geez! we are talking 10-20 HUD trusses loaded with movers, under hung with motors rigged up to 20"x20" truss, one section as long as 80' sitting on top of scaff towers. What the Hell do I do about grounding a system in this situation???and do I need to tie everything together?
I need to take in a seminar from Richard C. Soon!.

There is no specified space for Technical Directors / Production Guys so here I am! I am interested in all things technical theater and production design, especially in how they pertain to the real world of event production. Sure it looks good on paper but can we build it in a day?

sounds like they are selling entertainment not particularly music...

I just finished a show for Haymon Ent. in Hawaii. Virtually sold out show at the NBC Arena.
L'iL Wayne...Technically High end Audio(V-dosc and new DigiDesignConsoles?), 8Heavy-hung trusses(almost all movers) LED screen, 2 rear projections 15x20's, I-mag,Special EFX Pyro....for what? There was no music! I had to build a "strpper pole" for his dancers(OK that was kind of good), But seriously am I getting old or did someone forget to maybe write some musical content into the performance????

Amen, read every line of the contract, advance the crap out of your show, even if you have been to the building a hundred times, their staff has changed and may not know you or what you expect. Be a pro at all times that is why it is called Music Business.....
