No problem at all John. Hope you had a good trip.

Pontoons make complete sense! How are they generally secured in their respective place - do I model mooring on them, or are they generally anchored?

The ship will be made parallel once I build the pontoons, and I have to model it properly moored and stationery since I am simulating that the product transfer has already begun. The challenge for mooring for me is that the available space is so less (and frankly un-prototypical) there is no way to model mooring away from the ship - right in the front of the ship there is the bridge. I might manage something towards the stern, but the bow side has no space at all. Also the starboard side is water and passage way for boats further inside, so I cannot model buoys there.

I am scratching my head again!
