I would definitely agree with you in regards to the stability. Shore computer stowage of containers or sudden port rotation change? It would have been interesting watching a turn!

Rolling

Mv Wanstead In Ballast Could Roll Like A Barrel On North Atlantic Winter Runs, But Never Seeing It Fom Ashore, So Hard To Compare, I Know It Went On For Days, Looking At This Is Scary, Feel Sorry For Todays Crews, Living In Tower Blocks, Imagine How It Must Be On The Bridge, The Higher U Go , The Worse The Roll. At Least We Were More Or Less Main Deck Level,(eek)

The clue was in the video - Taranaki. Beam on to a big swell. There is a lot of swell induced movement alongside as well; popping mooring lines is very common.

Taranaki has a great reputation for good surf from big swells. I live there and enjoy going down to the port and watch big ships coming in, while giving the wife a running commentary as to what they are doing, what the tugs do etc, etc. Great video though, haven't seen that degree of rolling!

Bad news for the Port of New Plymouth with the announcement that Maersk is dropping NP off its schedule.
