We teach it as part of our advanced level courses. May be it should be dome earlier.

I have also had to dock a 41 foot Saga (seized alternator)and a 35 foot C&C (fouled cutlass bearing), I have practiced on Beneteau 461, Nauticat 37 and a few others.

The San Juan 21 fleet in Calgary is engineless as they sail on the drinking water reservoir.
