If you have a Twin Inboard Boat, you need to know how to dock it...

Docking Your Twin Inboard Boat is EASY...

Even Boaters Who Think They Can Dock a Boat
Will be Able to dock Even Better & Look Like a Pro!

 

Docking-T-IBProven, step-by-step 'how-to-dock-a-boat" e-Lessons from an authority on boat docking who has taught thousands—on all sizes and types of boats from outboards to motor yachts.

Inboard motors are located near the middle of the boat connected to propellers via long, straight shafts that extend on an angle through the bottom of the boat. Both motors are inside the boat. The rudders are placed behind the propellers for steering.

Docking a twin inboard is the easiest of all drive systems and most people graduate to twins during their later years in a yacht.

Doug shares his "giant tip" in this e-Lesson, so you’ll dock your yacht like a professional captain.

Plus, you'll save your First Mate from attempting to imitate the bionic woman.

Doug's Docking Definition
Confidently and safely bringing your boat into your slip or alongside your dock AND securing it to the dock in any conditions without yelling, swearing, jumping, boat hooks, bionics, dock helpers, guesswork or embarrassment; then, tying it appropriately for the situation.

 

Brenda, I want to thank Doug for his docking lessons.
I looked on You Tube and endlessly on the internet. Doug's lesson is the only one that worked.
Two weekday mornings out with the twin inboard lessons made a HUGE difference. There is such a difference in my docking abilities that other newbies are already asking for my advice. I can't wait to see the results after 6 months of real practice. I would be honored for you to use my comments. Thanks again.

"I can't wait to get out on the water and work on it. I’m sure it’ll make an amazing difference. That one little tidbit, though I’ve not even tried it out yet, will undoubtedly save me lots of aggravation, lots of discomfort, and lead to a far safer, more controlled, more predictable, and more successful set of boat docking procedures. The rest of the information you’ve given me is gravy."

God bless you guys! You can absolutely use my email. The point is, your docking lessons are very helpful.  I panicked this weekend when I took delivery of the new 32’ inboard and tried to use the I/O procedures that I used with my last boat, when leaving the dock and quickly learned they are two different animals. Thank you again for your understanding, incite and generosity.

—David Downs, Durango, Colorado

 

Just a quick follow up.  I read a good portion of the materials before I took my 32’ twin out for the holidays.  Great stuff!  I have to say that this new twin inboard is far easier to dock than my twin I/O.  Nevertheless, you materials made handling either boat easier and understandable.  I paid special attention to the part about remaining calm with my crew and not yelling!  The lessons kept that from happening. Thanks again.  Have a great New Year!

Thank you. After a difficult first day with a 36ft silverton several years ago, the purchase of your twin engine how to dock e.book was the best boating investment I have made. A little practice in the mirror completely solved any docking problem I may have had. I now have a 45ft silverton and handle docking perfectly. I strongly recommend this ebook to anyone having a problem.

Hi Doug, I am starting to be a better captain, with less fear and stress at the docking time. Thanks Doug and Brenda Dawson. I live a new life and I am enjoying my boat every week end, because, as you know, Haiti is sunny all over the year. Very truly yours,

Ernst

First Time Docking a 43 Footer

Doug, I wanted to share with you my story about how your twin inboard houseboat docking lesson helped me last summer.

I decided I wanted to live aboard. I live in the Charlotte area, but found an old 43' Harbor Master in Tennessee that I really liked. I traveled out there to have a look, and decided to buy it. Mind you, I've never driven a boat anywhere near this size, much less with two inboards. I scoured google for tips, and ran across your PDF lesson, which I purchased. I gave it a good read, and the methods you showed were nothing like what I expected. Prior to reading your lesson, I thought I would be using the wheel the whole time, using the engines for simple forward and reverse power only. The whole "Jolly Green Giant" thing had never crossed my mind, and it made a lot of sense.

So the next day I paid to have it hauled out and surveyed. The owner showed up to get the boat to the lift, and then had to leave. After the survey was complete, the surveyor drove off, the marina put the boat back in the water, and said "Ok Mr. Hatcher, she's all yours.". What!!? Not only was it my first time driving something like this, I had no first mate.

The slip was in a difficult place for me - if you think of the dock as a big "H", the slip was on the inside bottom left, almost to the middle. I had to worry about other boats on 3 sides. Remembering what I read in your lesson, I got a little forward momentum, made sure the wheel was centered, went in gear at 900 RPM, and (mentally) duct taped my hands to the gear levers. While nerve wracking, it responded exactly as you described, and I was able to slowly nose my way into the slip with very little trouble.

I can't imagine how different that experience would have been if I didn't run across your lesson the day before.

In fact, after having the boat shipped and put in the water in Charlotte, I drove it to the marina that would be its new home. The slip was the very inside slip, on my port side. So I had to drive past the finger, and pull hard port up against it. I made a flawless first entry, all the while using the lessons you taught me. One of the marina workers was standing on the dock as I pulled in.. when I stepped off to tie up, he said, "The man knows how to drive a boat!". I got a good laugh.. if he only knew it was my second time and my heart was racing :)

Thanks a lot for sharing your years of experience. I wanted to let you know how it helped me, and that I really appreciate it!
