High winds make shore-to-ship AND ship-to-ship transfers dangerous

Ship-to-ship transfers of LNG are especially dangerous in high winds as piping becomes inflexible at -162 degrees Celsius. SIGTTO and most ports prohibit these transfers in wind speeds/gusts over 25 knots, which is the average afternoon summer wind speed in Squamish.

The unique design of having a floating storage facility means that shore-to-ship transfers are also a problem for this proposal.
