Shiphandling Simulator

The Seamanship Tutor has put together a series of simple computer animations that show various shiphandling techniques. The animations include search and rescue operations, use of an anchor and docking operations (among others). The full set of videos can be found HERE but we’ll share with you a short preview:

The Baltic Moor

To achieve the “Baltic Moor”, the vessel should approach parallel to the berth at about 1 to 1.5 ships lenghts with offshore anchor walked back and a stern mooring wire secured by bights, along the ships side, to the ganger length of cable.
