A: Do you know?

I took this photo in 2009 when the Westerdam was departing Ft. Lauderdale. Many small craft are needed to assist a large ship, like the Westerdam, leave port. The harbor patrol boat seen here was going in circles to remain stationary relative to the large cruise ship.

The purpose of the boat is to prevent smaller boats from interfering with the large cruise ship and to prevent the smaller boats in harbor from being damaged by the big ship's wake.
