They're crazy - it's been well known for a long time. :D

See how stable that ship was? Watch for the camera shake or the side rail movement.

Talk about precision, looks like a daily occurrence. See how fast everyone moved?
and the vehicle traffic?

That's a practiced ground crew and captain. I'd take that ride any day.

Well of COURSE they're crazy! I knew immediately they were crazy when I saw the way the Greek Navy maneuvered those old FRAM destroyers back in the '70s. It comes from drinking all that Ouzo, I think.

Ok, as a proud Greek, sailor and psychologist...crazy it is! I love it. I wear around my neck a 2100 year old Greek coin with Tyche on one side (luck) and Astarte standing on a galley, tiller in hand on the other!

An old, Greek patient of mine used to love to say, "the Greeks have a saying. People are either alive, dead, or at sea!"

He's no longer with us, but I'll never forget him.

I sometimes feel like this when I'm trying to tie up to the dock and my family is getting on and off.

Yup, they're crazy. But they do look like they are well practiced.

I'm awestruck. Now that's ship handling.
