A somewhat different view from my normal one; spent hours on the tanker berth trying to keep the ship close enough alonside to avoid the gangway dropping between the ship and the berth. It only happened to me twice, once in PE and once in Capetown on the drydock's laybay berth.

Loved PE after the first four hours once we'd got a few thousand tons pumped out and the ship stayed alongside without tugs.
