So many thanks. So, Term dock is used only when it's related to repair of vessel. Like entering a cube of water and then water drained away to access areas below sea level. Once ready, its filled again and vessel floats again n then gates open to enter main water body. So it's from their that dry dock and wet dock came by .
When a vessel is locked to a pier or quay,its called berthing of vessel. Not docking. am I right?
So most lakes with private or public extensions into lake for accessing small vessels is called a pier.
Interesting that this search n landing at this place happened as I M standing at a place with both pier and quay.
Is it necesaary, pier has to be absolutely of wood. The ones we have are concrete n or steel but wooden logs are tied on sides, like cushion.
Then but whats a Marina?
A harbour lets ships dock in deep water but artificially or natural features making the water body calm and safe.
So a port is basically an infrastructure to berth ships within calm waters n undertake exchange of goods.
When the depth is less, then instead of Port, it could be a quay or jetties of fishing vessels.
So in any case a geographic feature or man made break water is what keeps the water body inside cut off from what's happening outside. 'Safe harbor' must hv orgins there.
A port or quay without some sort of breakwater will be open to storms n other elements of sea. Else it should be way inland like a river or lake connected to sea n deep enough to take ships to an infrastructure made aside an inland waterbody.
Please correct my understanding n also what is a Marina. I hv been associated with ports breakwaters lagoons n everything since childhood but still can't really explain the difference with confidence
Do you have to live in fear of your life since you broke away from the Muslim religion? Is there a target on your back as the result of taking on western women’s rights? Or are you disowned and shunned by your friends and family but left to be on your own? Lastly why do Muslim women try to get Western women drawn into their beliefs when Muslim women are regarded as property to abuse and forced into almost a type of slavery. I personally could never sit back and allow the men of that religion dictate to me that my daughter must be married to whomever wishes to claim her as his wife. To allow them to rape these children or mudulate their body’s.
