Captain Ron always puts a smile on my face. Need to buy a copy for the library.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

I do not believe it. We Netflixed "Capt. Ron", laughed our tails off, then promptly went out and backed in perfectly to the dock. Thank you Capt. Ron.
Caveat: Realizing that the boat only goes to starboard in reverse, regardless of which way you turn the wheel, we simply edged up to the outer piling, held the starboard bow line loosely, then put it in reverse and her stern slipped right around into the slip. As it got centered, put it in forward and nudged her to stop the rotation, grabbed the port bow line and we pulled her back by hand with the bowlines until she was in the slip, then snubbed her off with the bowlines, stepped off and tossed the stern lines to my wife, then slipped on the springs and we were good.

On lookers are always and easily amazed it they aren't sailors. I love doing a 180 at a good speed, the boat turns quick and nearly stops Then I use the the River's strong current to ferry the boat to port. I won't try and do it close to a dock though. And I'm still not able to do it starboard when the current is running in. (the prop walk on my boat is to port) I'll never try to do a captain Ron though.

Yea, I don't think Capt. Ron ever heard the same primary rule of docking that I have, "Never approach the dock any faster than you want to hit it". Or maybe he has!!

Yeah, the issue with that is that Murphy strikes us mortals when we try something like that with a broken transmission cable JUST AS YOU GO TO REVERSE. Been there, done that. Left a mark on the opposing boat's sprit with my sprit (across the walkway). Luckily, it wiped off.
