Lack of instruction

I see this is the season of Canaltime bashing, so let me show you a picture.

I pulled in and had a word with the lady on the stern, but she told me there was nothing else to tie to!  Did not know what the mooring pins were for.

This was a long time back though when they had solid fenders, but shows the lack of proper instruction.
