Carly is a bright yellow gantry crane who works at Brendam Docks with Cranky the Crane. When Carly first arrived, Cranky feared that Carly would replace him. She was so keen that she took on all the work, which made Cranky jealous, and he frantically tried to outdo her. Soon their hooks became entangled, and they found themselves stuck fast and unable to move. Salty told them that they needed to work together. And soon enough, Carly and Cranky learned to work as a team.
