A question: Looking at some pics in another thread got me to wondering if ships like the Olympic class could ever use their various pump discharges below the waterline to say nudge the ship over when docking or leaving? Or were they just too big to consider that. I ask that because I saw in a movie once where carriers in the old days had used their prop planes tied down to use the thrust from their props to help dock the ship. The other thread was veering off from the original topic so I asked this here. Cheers all.
