Re: Don't "drive" your boat like it's a car!

Our slip is on a long side pier, with perpendicular finger slips across from us. Skippers are either backing past us for their side slip spot or hugging next to us, to make the turn into their finger slip. Most do a fine job. Some scare the crap out of me. Occasionally, even the good skippers get in a bind and botch one up. So far, no impact. Fingers crossed, throws salt over shoulder, etc.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
