Docking-S-OB.jpg

Proven, step-by-step boat docking e-Lessons from the authority on docking a boat. Doug (5th generation boat industry professional) has taught thousands—on all sizes and types of boats from outboards to motor yachts.

An Outboard or O/B motor is the most popular type of drive system but the most difficult to dock. (This is the motor that is attached to the back of the boat and the entire motor is turned for steering.)

The "Docking Your Single Outboard-Introductory" e-Lesson has 120 pages with 140 diagrams of proven, detailed, step-by-step instructions for handling and docking a Single Outboard Bow First--in your slip and at a gas dock.

Doug teaches:

  • Why it's not your fault docking is so difficult
  • How your Outboard handles in open water exercises
  • Doug's "KEY" to handling a Single Outboard
  • What to expect as you use the wheel, shift and throttle
  • How to outsmart the wind/current/fairway momentum
  • How to recover from screw-ups
  • Doug's FLIPP Line™ procedure to simplify docking
  • What not to do and why
  • How to dock bow first in 4 different winds with left approach tying port and starboard sides
  • How to dock bow first in 4 different winds with right approach tying port and starboard sides
  • All 16 scenerios are complete and independent instructions
  • How to dock with a wind in a boat lift 
  • How to parallel dock at a gas dock/restaurant dock
  • An easy approach to a dock bow first--no fear, no guessing, no hoping for the best, no jumping, no injuries, no boat hook. No shouting and no swearing--just good teamwork
  • How to dock easily and safely--even in front of an audience!

Once you know how your boat was meant to be handled, boat docking is EASY. It's just a matter of practicing Doug's techniques specific to your single outboard boat.

When you have mastered docking bow first (usually takes several weeks or a full season), you will be ready for "Docking Your Single Outboard--ADVANCED" to learn stern first docking and many more neat docking maneuvers covered in great detail over 230 pages.

 "I dock my boat in an area with very strong currents and shifting winds. While I am getting better with practice after reading the introductory book, I am looking forward to learning more from the advanced copy.


Hope I didn't bore you, but wanted to say thanks and let you know that what you are doing is saving not only boats, but also lives.

Keep up the good work! Boating knowledge allows you to live and fish another day and to come home safely to your loved ones. Your work is important! Thanks again and tight lines."

Dear Brenda and Doug:

So cool that you We're the ones who actually did the review on this boat almost 25 years ago! Things come full circle.

Thanks for the details on the hull and what happened to the molds with World Class Catamarans.  I got the boat last year and the engine died right away, and I'm just re-powering it, so I haven't had a chance to use it on the Mississippi much yet really.  Researching what I could about it, I think it may be my favorite boat ever.Like a lot of us I enjoy learning the history about my boat!

I had already checked out your website and had already decided to get the book on docking the boat, so will be sure to get the pontoon version. And even though I'm an Eagle Scout and thought I knew in my knots well, I've already also decided to order the book on knots!   It sounds like you've developed a lot of great resources!

Peace and Love

Tom Schreiber

 

Brenda, "Nice job by you and Doug, I really like your common sense approach to handling a boat with easy time for the first mate." Thanks again.

Bill, 'a fan'.

 

Y'all are the best! Downloaded it, saved it, printed it--now all we have to do is master it! Thank you so much.

For trailered boats, make sure the drain plug is on your checklist!  It wasn't on mine and I mistakenly expected that the shop who summerized and delivered my boat had installed it.  They didn't, and I didn't check for it, and didn't realize it wasn't there 'till I got back to my backyard dock and saw the water coming up thru the ski well.  I'm now known as "soggy-boy" after falling off the boat into the lake while trying to install the plug from above; would have been a lot easier on the launch ramp!  Fortunately, nothing was damaged but my pride . . . Cheers

Dave Keyser, Soggy-boy

Thanks! Always great to receive your monthly newsletter. Well done and appreciated!
keeep up the super good work.....
