Berthing with wind astern

The procedure is similar to that of Fig.47 (berthing with port anchor), except that the vessel must be canted slightly away from the berth in (2) to allow for the onshore swing generated by the astern transverse thrust. The offshore cant must not be excessive, for prolonged utero movement to correct this may cause the stem to foul the quay.
