In my 25 years on hull trawlers iv done this about 3or4 times he has been pened in the tug pulls you down the dock to turn the ship round as you cannot land in hull starboard side to , that is what he is doing in this photo, this is what the tugs did has the freezer trawlers on there market took to much room up, for turning ships like the ROSS TRAFALGER, This was one of the reasons why the hull trawlers needed a new dock? laurie..

any trawler that comes in the dock bow first has missed the inward tide, you cant come alongside with the tide behind you, it would be impossible to nudge along side, with the tide with you, thats why the trawlers turned to face the incoming tide
