Biro sketch of a local Star Ferry Sailor helping to moor a docking ferry boat to the pier at Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.  

He has just caught a rope with his long billhook that was tossed to him by another sailor on the boat, a manual practise that dates back to the 1920’s. It's fascinating to hear the rope stretch & screech as it takes the weight of the boat amidst the roiling harbor waves.
