Thursday 5 May 2011: Parking Service
I can't get enough of the fact that the yardpersonnel are driving around with 3000 Tons vessels the same way and routine you and me are parking our car. The shovel driver in the big yellow shovel simply starts pushing, no wires or connections whatsoever. Even stopping a vessel doesn't give him any headache at all. Just stop pushing more or less a ships length before the target position and wait will happen. I love it. On the other hand I silently hope to see a vessel overshoot its target position on the shiplift and launches itself freefall in the water. That would make my day.
