    Oh I'm sure that will buff right out.

    Edit: But I think this thread might be in the wrong subforum. "Yachtclub" might be more the place for it.

    Let's leave it in the General Discussion forum for awhile. It's a good thread idea. There's a few dramatic docking videos on YF. If I can find 'em, I'll merge 'em.

    Thanks for the videos guys. This made for some good lunchtime entertainment at my desk today, nothing like the sound of people yelling and diesels revving . Now I have to explain to my coworkers why i was laughing so much !

    Cringing with a capital C. What do you think was the problem for that beautiful yellow sportfish - too tight on his med moor bow anchor?

    No idea...... Saw the throttles come up though, always a bad sign. He didn't have a lot of wind. I hate to be "that guy standing on the dock" but it looks like he was a little confused on which lever did what..... The boat was light enough, and there were plenty of hands...... a little coordination and he could have put em in neutral and they could have shoved him well clear. Rudders amidships, slow ahead, try again. But what do I know.

    My wife gets upset with me when I get on my topics (crusade)...
    Yes, There should be a law against stupid people.
    The dingbat operator (best word I could think of and type) took his PDF off half way thru his near peril.
    SFBs.
    If you look at the stern drift, The ship turned to port and drifted by them (I think).

    Sad part, dumb shits probably didn't know they were about to die.
