Giving a Push
Giving a Push
With strong crosswinds or tides these chain ferries tend to get pulled off-line a little. This normally does not matter as there is plenty of slipway, but at the time this photo was taken the slipway just out of shot to the right was being repaired so this boat is giving the ferry a shove to the left to keep it on-line.
