Hi Doug,

 

We decided to get back into boating after 21 years. Our first attempt at docking our boat was a nightmare and embarrassing to say the least! To top it all off we have an opening into a marina of 35ft and we are the second slip in to the starboard side and our dock is port side bow in slip. To top it all off the first slip is 10 feet wide and then the next is ours. We have a 10.6beam and single screw and our slip is 12.6 wide. We also have the wind to contend with and no way to make a complete turn in the marina and come in facing the wind. After reading your docking 101 book, I am docking like a Pro! Three easy maneuvers and I am sliding into our slip with ease and my first mate is able to tie off with no issues.

As soon as my nose of the bow is in the opening for the marina at neutral position I steer all the way over Starboard shift in to forward. Back to neutral steering all over to port and I shift to reverse 3 second count and back to neutral. Straighten steering and shift to forward a little goose and we are in the slip Into neutral and a reverse shift we are stationary and my first mate ties up.

I want to thank you for a book that finally made sense! Everything else on the internet was either for sailing vessels, twin screw or for a single screw with a rudder! You have made our boating experience with our new boat completely relaxed with no stress and we hit the slip every time on our first attempt using your instructions.

Thanks again!! I will be telling everyone to pick up your books and tips!

"Just wanted to let you know how helpful your e-lesson has been to me in docking my 22 foot bowrider with single sterndrive. I recently moved from an engineless sloop sailboat to my first powerboat and could not fathom how to dock the beast.

Since digesting your lesson and doing the open water practice you recommended, my docking has improved 1000%! The last two outings with lots of company on board, I managed to pull off smooth, successful landings on the first attempt. These dockings were so uneventful that I was the only one who was impressed.

Your monthly articles have also provided additional helpful ideas. Thank you!"
