Final maneuvering into a side-tie position

Last minute maneuvering into a side-tie position. Once in place, all the maneuvering is done by the line handlers (red shorts) and the captain (red hat) can relax, put her feet up, crack a brewskie. NOTE: In normal -- non-drought -- conditions, this upper chamber of the Gatun locks would be full. In other words, you'd be seeing over the chamber wall (it would look like a curb) in this image.
