MSC mega container ship docking: near-miss or perfect maneuver? VIDEO

Container ship MSC MARGRIT looked like she barely avoided contact with pier at San Antonio port, Chile, in the evening Jun 11, while maneuvering to berth on arrival from Coronel. It looked like a near-miss to onlookers, and on video, but according to port authorities, everything was under control all the time, with assisting tugs and pilot on board, who was in charge of the operation. Maybe maneuvering was too daring, but it didn’t go beyond normal safety procedures, authorities insist.
