Tough.
Got to keep them moving over 8 knots if possible and have 2 tugs with lines up for when you stop her off the berth.

Container ships, not as bad. The don't have the high molded depth and the draft is usually much deeper. Say 42' draft compared to 26' on a Car Carrier. But your still on your toes

Here is a picture of a Pacific Seacraft (40 I think), we are selling our current boat and will try for one of these or even a 44.
