        When you are at anchor the ship swings, as I am sure you have noticed :-) on a cargo ship this isn't a big problem, even on passenger ships we don't care that much - however if there is any kind of swell or conditions which are causing the tenders to move quite a bit at the pontoons, our lovely cargo has issues getting into them. To solve this problem one of the many things we can do is to turn the ship so that whatever side we are using for tendering is sheltered - now most pax ships will do this using either their stern thrusters or azipods - this can result in being quite expensive if you end up running the thrusters for 8 hours just to keep the stern from swinging round and putting your pontoon back into the swell - thus a few pax ships are fitted with stern anchors which can be dropped once in position and removes the need to run the thrusters / azipods all day. In theory - but of course the weather usually changes and you end up having to reposition anyway!
