Buy a set of wireless walkietalkie headphones with a speaker mike....time and time again I watch some poor hapless wife, girlfriend daughter etc, get lambasted because the Captain just is not proficient nor calm thru the process. Have him slow it down, way down, speak quietly into the mike and walk the boat in. Nothing a mate can do when one blows thru the mooring or bounces off the dock..a good competent skipper docks calmly, with clear, crisp direction....anything less than either find another skipper, take lessons yourself or just walk away..tears and boating are not an endorsable combination
