Not ever having driven the ship would I be close in suggesting that the guy on the wheel in Trafalgar is a little heavy with the "right hand down a little " routine as it is quite clear the fuel hose male coupling could have hit the top of the female coupling as it decended from above instead of gracefully slipping across and in from the usual horizontal position.
The outcome of trying new positions has the male end groping down the wall hoping to find any porthole in a storm.
The guy on the wheel in Trafalgar is two decks down in the wheelhouse and can see nothing but the gyro repeater. The ship is driven alongside by helm & engine orders from thr bridge, so in this case the officer driving in has got too close and will have gradually edge his way further off
(Driving a ship in for a RAS has to be one of the best tests of shphandling ability.) Great stuff !!
Don't think She went up to Iceland whilst I was aboard Her 14/01/63 to 07/10/63. Went Up aboard the "Baron" 19/06/62 to20/12/62 sometime during those dates. We were on our way up aboard the "Ruler" 26/10/59 to25/11/59 but Had to turn back because of storm damage.Rgds.
