Looks like a pilot boat moving lines from boat to boat so they can tie up, they have huge bumpers out and the water is flat. Whats not safe?

It's a Greenpeace picture that bad boy is trying to disturb the process of re-supply.

Well then it looks like all you need is one of those $20 pistol cross bow guns from wall mart, shoot one into the front of that RIB and the problem goes away.

ship on the right in the pic is "shooting" the rib with water. i wouldn't think that would be what one would do if they were exchanging lines to tie up
