    An extremely difficult and dangerous situation. The ship had to tie off, then stabilize by powering against the moorings, and a mistimed traverse could have easily ended in disaster with the masses of green water flowing across the landing. Heck, I'd do it on a TW just for the butt pucker factor.

    Apparently just another day at the ferry dock for these folks. Business as usual on another wave swept day.

    That is really impressive Fred, mostly because it is the stern of the ship. I am sure that he has bow thrusters but there are no markings on the hull to indicate that he has stern thrusters. It is all engines in the stern, I hope he has flanking rudders. If the crew ever lost that line and it went in one of the wheels, that day would go bad quickly. Very impressive, thanks for posting it.
