Maybe you should check out the other thread

A few members have responded about having a lot of current in their Marinas. While we have to deal with strong winds and some surge in the SF Bay Area marinas, I've never been to a Marina where currents were an issue. Aren't breakwaters supposed to eliminate currents for the most part?
Thanks for the videos. Some classic stuff! Evidence that people can screw up stepping OR jumping from moving boats, boats that are secure and from secure docks onto boats. I guess the rule should be "Think before YOU move". But then....I thought that went without saying. Silly me!
