2  Ferry Ft Gaines approaching the ramp in Portland. 
3-ftgaine-4-01-13-pb.jpg (119655 bytes)
Ft Gaines appears to be used to carry construction equipment to the many islands in Casco Bay.  With tide and wind on this day the Captain had her perpendicular to the shore and allowed the elements to carry the ferry to her berth.
4-ftgaine-4-01-13-pb.jpg (172431 bytes)
The pilings on her starboard side stop her drift and allow her to position herself at the concrete ramp.  As vehicles board and disembark the Captain moves the ferry closer or further off the ramp to allow for change of trim as weight on board changes.
