Good reason to always wear a life jacket!!!

Since you brought up Galveston, my DIL (who also had a Deck Officer licence) was on the bridge as her ship traversed the ship channel. The passage made her nervous. She said it was entirely possible to pass a tray of cookies from the wing of one vessel to another as they passed. [For those who never noticed, bridge wings on a tanker extend beyond the hull.]
