A ford to cross a waterway with a boat that is provided on-site as part of a route. The boat may be attached to a cable for pulling to the opposite side, or there may be two boats on each of the sides.
How to Map
- use a single node ford where a highway crosses a waterway that is mapped as linear stream without riverbanks
- use the way-method for larger streams with mapped riverbanks
The highway should share nodes with the riverbanks where it crosses them and also a node with the waterway=stream where they cross. Split the highway between the riverbanks and apply ford=boat to this segment .
