MSS Case September: Contact while berthing
The vessel would be berthed port side between two vessels which were already berthed. The master asked the pilot if any tugboats would be necessary, but the pilot said it would be unnecessary as the vessel would have 200 m clearance between the berthed vessels.
In the latest MSS Case, we discuss how we ensure that we keep track of the current and wind, how it is communicated within the bridge team and if there are assigned roles for the bridge team.
