On a route that only gives 45 minutes to offload and load passengers and vehicles, how do the Alaska ferries quickly secure the ship to the dock?
Tying the Taku to the dock makes use of centuries-old and last-century technology. It still works very well.
This is also going on in the stern of the ship. The crew on the ship's bridge makes sure that the lines are brought up just right so that the ramp aligns with the car deck door. Within a few minutes the Taku is all fast to the dock!
