Re: Don't "drive" your boat like it's a car!
I've made my share of Youtube-worthy bloopers. I'm sure I'll make more. We were all new at one time. This thread could be a good way for everyone, new and old, to learn something new. Hopefully it won't turn into a way to simply make fun of people.
So far (knock on wood), our most egregious lapse in situational awareness involved the Naked Lightning Dance but, we're still young (ish) and there's plenty of time for something truly dangerous/costly/embarrassing.
I have made entry and exits that were perfect, then again sometimes i am glad no one saw that. There is a young fellow that that just finished a circumnavigation on my dock. He docks like a rookie. Go figure. Bottom line the only way you get better is to do it often. I don't make fin of anyone I usually offer to help.
