Skipper Stu and the Steam Crane is the eighth episode of Season 5.
Skipper Stu, Harry, Hamish, and Russ need to load a ship that is arriving soon; when the modern crane fails to load the ship, Old Puffer Pete spots the old steam crane and has an idea.
- This is the first and only episode where neither Wilson, Brewster, or Koko appear in.
- As shown in the animatic for the episode, Zack, Jackman, and Skylar were originally intended to appear during the final act of the episode, acting on standby (with Zack originally being the one to take away the container as the steam crane-to-flatbed transfer was prepared for). They were likely cut due to their lack of involvement and to save on time and budget.
