Spanish term or phrase: abordados a
The phrase appears repeatedly in a ship's logbook, describing the ship's relation to various other ships in its port. As in, "abordados a SS Merrimimack".

"Approached to" seems ungrammatical, but I get the sense that they mean "parked next to". I have translated this as "alongside". Is there a more appropriate technical term?

  -> Thanks, Phil. Hard to say with hardly any context. The 2 meanings of "abordar " in this context that I found were colliding and mooring. Presume it's not the first one.
