That is a Murray and Tregurtha Harbormaster Drive, if I'm not mistaken. Developed during WWII for the government to power barges. Another great old school marine innovation. There is a brief history of the system at http://www.harbormastermarine.com/History.htm

A quite normal system. Many working boats and plattforms have this kind of system. Also many floating sheerlegs use this system called "Schottel Navigator". Mainly used because then it is able that these kind of vessels can run aground in the wadden sea to work there and this won't occure any damage on the engine and propeller because they can lift it.
In Germany f.e. many working vessels operated by this system!

A bunch of small tankers that worked in NY had that setup. I remember watching one dock at the oil terminal near my house...it looked like the capt was driving a skid steet loader when trying to dock.
