I have run into a number of threads that people have had problems embarking/disembarking ferries with trailers. As a person who rode B.C Ferries more times than I care to remember I have also witnessed all sorts of mayhem at ferry ramps.
FYI To all:
When using ferries of any sort anywhere, pay close attention to high and low tides. Try to schedule your embarking just before a high tide, and disembarking just after a high tide, with the middle of your trip being high tide. The reason being is that at high tide the jetty ramps are at there most level point in relation to the wharf. When embarking or disembarking at or close to high tide the ramp and movable jetty are almost completely level; at low tide the ramp and jetty are at its steepest.
Per Mare, Per Terram and may all your campaigns be successful.
