Port Chalmers is the deep water port on Otago Harbour. It is where the first organised European settlers arrived in Otago (1848). It looked a bit different then (www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nzlwo/images/port_chalmers_1848.jpg ).
I sat and ate lunch while the image took. It was a quite grey day to begin with and two rainstorms came through while it was taking (you can see the grey bands to the left of the Cap Beaufort (red ship). You can see her smoke drifting north (right).
At the start of the pan the green crane was working the Jemima but moved along to help finish off the Beaufort. I thought it would be alright but they lowered the boom at exactly the wrong moment (hence a wiggly boom).
Both of these ships came in on the morning tide and were due to leave in the afternoon (www.portotago.co.nz/13/1.html ). By my count (once I finished lunch the work I had brought with me seem less important) there were about 20 people working (3 cranes, 7 straddle cranes and about 5 moving around on each ship). I realise that there's quite a few in the back offices, but still, that's not many people moving a huge amount of cargo in a really short time.
