It’s been over a half year since I played voyeur at a docking, so I was happy when I got to watch Minerva Eleonora sally in recently, following Mary Gellatly. Note Laura K. to port and Doris Moran to starboard.

Once Laura K. controls most forward momentum, Doris cuts around the stern

and makes to.

Shore crew catching lines await behind some unambiguously inhospitable signage

When signals are clear, Laura K. puts her 5100 hp into pushing,

shoving Eleonora toward the dock,

with utmost control, pinning the tanker.  Note Laura K. prop froth extending most of the way across the KVK.
