Heave away me Johnny, heave away

I found some neat pics of whale oil casks sitting on their side. How they're secured, I'm not sure. I do notice rope around one.

I had an idea of a cask "wedgie" with the lid toward the viewer. Perhaps a 1/4 of it shown. I'm inspired by a scene from the 1957 movie 'Moby Dick', which shows a cask being hoisted to the ship and on the lid says "Sail Maker, Pequod". It would be neat to see this painted all weathered and worn.

I'm going to play with this idea for a bit.

Thanks for following.
