Anyone who has ever driven a boat knows there’s an art form to docking the boat and securing the lines. It’s nerve-wracking (at least in my opinion). So, imagine how stressful it must be for the people in charge of docking the Disney Fantasy cruise ship.
I got the chance to watch it happen this morning (so did the Captain as you see from this photo).
Watching the guys pull the lines was a bit like watching that TV commercial where people are pulling a huge rope to pull the sun up. Know which one I’m talking about? Well, same thing here…a little rope being pulled by several guys to make sure the side of the ship is secure in the right spot.
Then, the massive ropes are secured.
