In theory it's just the bow. However, if it's been a day where the fog is persistent and continuous, the stern pickleforks occasionally get left closed inadvertently. Or perhaps deliberately if the boat's changing ends on a frequent basis and the crew opts to not have to chase everyone off the pickleforks at the start of every crossing, avoiding the inevitable "I'm a taxpayer and I can go where I want" arguments.

My on-board video of a trip on Tenaka, on the Hornby Island route. - October 15, 2014 on her first day working this route, this year.
This video shows a Hornby-to-Denman trip, which means that it shows the 2 special-moments of a single-ended ferry trip: ie. the backing out at the start, and the swinging around at the end.
....but the first few moments are of the landing at Hornby on my previous trip. Take note of how the apron fits the car-deck, considering the sharp turn needed by a vehicle using the starboard lane (which is where I'm filming from)

A trip on the Quinsam to Gabriola and back. - March 21, 2015.
The "to Gabriola" leg is the 5:00pm sailing, which I took after the previous 3:50pm sailing was overloaded. - I had nice sunlight shining from behind
After enjoying 4 hours filming afternoon sky, sunset, dusk progression from a Gabriola viewpoint, I headed back to Nanaimo on the 9:35pm ferry. - I spent half that sailing doing time-exposure still photos, and then I started filming our approach to downtown Nanaimo.

Here's my Route-30 early morning trip video.
5:15am on Coastal Renaissance, from Duke Point to Tsawwassen.
The ship's master faked me out at the end of the trip, where I thought he was headed to berth-5, but just after I switched sides the approach became obvious to berth 3....and so I quickly changed sides again. Other than that, it's an unbroken time-lapse for the entire trip.
