This chapter discusses the development of port activity to suit the movement of ships. Over the course of the twentieth century the average vessel size grew from 5200 to 19,000 gross registered tons. The development in ship technology changed the nature, shape and weight of cargo and passenger ships significantly enough to require a vast restructuring of the port to include deep-water channels and berths - a costly endeavour.
