Explanation:
Gangways are typically hinged at the upper end to a stationary abutment above high water; the lower end is typically supported by wheels that roll on a fixed-location floating boarding pier that rises and falls with water level changes.

Skid piers on the other hand are mobile structures that are periodically “skidded” up and down a boat launch ramp in response to rising and falling water levels.
