Re: Wonderful docking video
If you want to be humbled, come to my marina which is half pleasure boats, and half working shrimp trawlers. And, then watch the old salts back these single screw trawlers, that have no bow thrusters, into impossibly tight slips, like the boats are on underwater rails guiding them in, never touching a piling or pier as they tie up.
Several are directly across from us, and every time I see one come in with high cross winds, I think, "This is going to be tough," and every time they still just grease the thing in.
