I guess I missed your photo of lifting the torpedo last October. I'm only a very junior crane operator, but: I'll lift a rail if one end is a little heavy and it's going to stay within a few feet of the ground so my helpers can balance and steer it But given all the packaged fun represented by a torpedo, if one end came up first I'd set it right back down, gently. In your finished scene, I think the Mechanikerobermaat in charge of loading would also have seamen on the deck and dock, each with a line tied off to the rear end to guide and stabilize it.

Dave thanks for the update.

That is an excellent looking crane. And the backdrop isn't to bad either.
