Re: Look at that!!!!! The Greek are crazy..or Brave

Very impressive boat handling and coordination with shore crew. You can see one of the shore crew toss the heaving line to the ferry crew about 1/4 of the way into the video, so they clearly know the drill.

For remote locations that depend primarily on ferry service, they can't simply cease operations when conditions are less-than-idyllic. As someone noted, the Greeks (and others) have been doing this kind of thing for generations, so it probably isn't that big a deal to them as it appears to those of us less accustomed to such things.
