I can't help but think she looks a little bit vulnerable to wind and tide, moored effectively midstream as she is.

It may look mid stream - but the dredging that was required for her new berth went into hard rocky substance that had not been dredged before. [edit - and some old wooden piles]

I was on the ship today at about 5pm. She has been moving back and forward a few feet during the day, but well within the scope of the two telescopic gangways. The high bulwarks made it fairly comfortable on deck - but the quaysides around the new Museum are scarilly exposed. The shape of the building seems to do some odd things to the wind even on a calm day; but in this sort of weather it is hard to see how the public will be allowed to walk around the outside.
