2. Do you think Oak Bay is in mode 1 in that shot? I don't see any churn from the east end prop. I thought the Cs always used mode 2 for docking.
I've checked the series of photos that I took: - they stopped the stern-prop quite a ways out from the dock - no prop wash from either end for the glide to the dock - then the bow-prop started right at the moment that I took the photo that you quoted.
I'll post a timeline sequence of photos of this event. ....but it will be done later this afternoon.
