Makes you realise why so often QE2 didn't try to dock at all.  Think the Captain was being over cautious not trying?

"The QE2 is one of the last great transatlantic liners, and arguably the most famous liner in the world"

"QE2 and Concorde, a partnership that lasted almost 30 years... two stunning pieces of engineering, never to be forgotten!"

Looks a bit lively to me! Think I will stick to our practice of anchoring where possible (its also usually free).
