Here is another harbour-related sound recording from the Oshima Island. It is another favourite sound of mine when it come to docks, like the tied ropes and whistling lines on a windy day. This sound comes from the ferry dragging one of its sides against those big rubber blocks you see in the above picture. Since the vessel is pushed by waves toward the dock, the sound is never the same and at times it doesn’t even occur. Here is only a short part accompanied by the roaring engines of the ferry.
