Check this out, the port side of that ferry has to be pretty beat up, unless it`s full of tires strapped to the side.

Looks like the same thing from a different angle, and maybe a calmer day.

Europeans do a lot of things that make Americans cringe ....

So much for the port side. That's impressive. I wonder if there`s a helm station on the stern so the Capt can watch what's going on or it`s all done by cameras.

That's how they do it in Italy too. I was there in June although the seas weren't as bad as that video.

In my case, it was 2-4' at roughly 10 seconds. They pull straight up to a rock and throw 2 lines to guys on land. Deploy the ramp and people get off as the whole thing bobs up and down.

That was pretty sporty for sure.
