Looked like a nice job by the captain...didn't notice but I was surprised to not see a guy on each side with a large fender to let it roll on...just in case.


That would just be another normal day for many a tugboat driver. Try that with a long push and no bow thruster..of course you don't have to worry as much about the "yacht finish" if you do bump.


I'm more impressed with the tug crews that push a wide dredge through an opening like that and have to coordinate snaking a 1000 feet of dredge pipe through trailing behind.
