A superb scene !! Plenty of activity. What I'd like to know, if there are any engineers on the site here, is when two heavyweights are berthed onto a jetty, how much stress is imposed on the jetty legs/structures from the moorings? One vessel appears to be nearly empty the other as seen fully loaded. On any given day, whether there is heavy-weather or not there must be some movement going on within the structure.
