Here was the first in this series.

Size matters.  I love watching the line handlers shift lines over to the bollards.   

As a vessel arrives at a dock, lines are at ready so that no time is wasted. 

Trust and communication are a must, even if no common language exists.  And as winter approaches,  this work becomes less and less comfortable or forgiving.

Kudos to the line handlers.
