Boats

I used to commute on the Mersey ferry(*) some score of years ago.

They would tie one 4 inch thick rope round a bollard and then swing the ferry boat against the motors to align the stern with the Seacombe landing stage. The ropes complained loudly when the tide was running. I tended to stay back a little until the drawbridge went down.

(*) 1200 tonnes, four engines.
