Watch out for the dock!!

We've all nudged the dock a bit, let's admit it right now. Some people take it to the extreme and hit a car in the process.

It seems to have saved the boat and should cost less to repiar the car

At least he told the deckhands to hold on, but why the 6 fenders on the SB side, when playing bumper cars they should be on the bow. Must have had trouble getting it out of gear as he hit it again.
This shows they rent/charter to any one. See Learning to Sail thread/discussion.

At least they have a video to show to their disbelieving insurance agents.

I recall the bow of Hudson River Dayliner clipping and totalling a car parked on the second deck of a waterfront parking garage, No video is available, however.
