Boat Friday

 

The Tymac Storm just dropped off a late passenger onto our moving ship in the Port of Vancouver...

all of the turbulence was caused by the use of the ships side thrusters as she turned out to sea.

A very modern vessel, it seems...
....peter:): very modern and powerful as well Larry....petersmile
That is a very nice shot with the boat in all that self-made white water.
....peter:): the white water was caused by the bow thrusters from our cruise ship Michael... it sure kickes up a lot of white water....petersmile
On dirait un peu les bateaux de sauvetage en mer de chez moi.
....peter:): c'eressemble à un bateau très en état de navigabilité Martine et je suis sûr qu'ils ferait de bons bateaux de sauvetage... bise....peter/pierresmile
Isn't she a pretty little thing!
....peter:): pretty and very seaworthy Elizabeth....petersmile

....peter:): she was very seaworthy Chris... the rough water was caused by the bow thrusters from our cruise ship....petersmile

Did the passenger have to climb a ladder with all his luggage, Peter?!
....peter:): they put down a set of stairs about 20' long along the side of the ship Lisl... he only had one suitcase to carry up....petersmile
Impressionnant !!!!
Très belle prise de vue
....peter:): merci bien Claudine... bise....peter/pierresmile
It looks as if it has performed a pirouette.
....peter:): the captain performed some great seamanship Chad... he was dropping off a late passenger to a set of 20' stairs up the side of the ship where the bow side thrusters were turning the ship out to sea....petersmile
Really? They would not do that for our ferries. I guess missing the cruise ship would be a bit different.
....peter:): the company that owns these boats provide service for the Vancouver harbour Mary... i'm sure that the passenger had to pay a lot to get the ride out to the ship....petersmile
I bet they were panicking at the thought of missing the boat!
....peter:): he may have been panicking Bill... but i'm sure that the passenger had to pay a lot to get the ride out to the ship....petersmile

I wonder if the passenger had to pay for this "taxi"? My elder brother does a fair amount of cruising and he often comments about otiose that are late back on to the tour bus to get back to the ship. Not quite so extreme as this, though! I like the swirl.
....peter:): i am sure that it cost him a lot to take this boat to the ship out in the harbour Alan... he had to climb a gang walk staircase about 20' high with his one suitcase... the turbulence was caused by the the bow side thrusters when the ship was turning out to sea....petersmile
