They decided to try to secure the forward and aft ends of the stage using nylon straps and chains.
They finished that up just in time for lunch but by 12:45 they were ready to try again. This time, the didn't even move a foot before they waved off; the stage was still moving too much.
After a short meeting of the various crews, a call went out to Marshall for I-beams. While waiting for Marshall to deliver the I-beams, they located some on the USSRC grounds and brought them to the work area. By the time they relocated the USSRC I-beams, the truck from Marshall arrived.
Marshall delivered four I-beams. They moved two to each side of the S-II and began to bolt them together, only to find out that they were roofing I-beams and would join together at an angle, rather than forming a single straight beam. So, they had to bring the fork lifts back over and flip one of the beams around so they could make a single, straight I-beam.
