There are many references in this thread to "jumping" off a moving boat.
Even with guests aboard, only my wife and I take care of the docking chores.
Our prime rule is "NO JUMPING". If she has to jump rather than step off the boat, I did'nt put it in the right place.
I have seen many more people hurt from jumping from a moving boat than any other docking type incident.
