Looking again at that merch rapidly approaching the tug, the bloke on the right looks like he's preparing to throw a heaving line up to the blokes on the foc's'le. What do reckon the chances are he made it first time :)

Actually wrecks, looking at the deck , it does look like they are about to take it under tow. I don't fancy that blokes chances with the heaving line yet can't see how else they intend getting a pilot line across. Unless there is a RAS style rifle launched gizmo out of picture. Wouldn't fancy trying to take lines across in a seaboat either in that sea state.

I wonder what the duty deck-ape was thinkin' as he saw it getting ever nearer.
Stamping his feet and having a hissy fit, "but we have right of way".

(See, even WAFUs did rules of the road =))

Edited to add: I think I'd be sh*%$ing myself when I realised it was an LPG container.

Had a heaving line throwing competition on a ship I was on. The Radio Officer won and God only knows where he got his technique and experience from! It was prompted from going alongside Norwegian ships and they had a deadly habit of throwing strong fishing line with a chunk of lead attached over. You just do not see it coming. It's dense and it hurts!
Sound description for the Norwegians as well!
