Don't you think that the fenders are a bit small for a boat that size. Perhaps that's part of the cause -- unable to fend off -- got stuck. But, did you notice the hitchs holding the stern cleat to the finger pier didn't let go. The man must tie a mean knot.

Re: Bad park job

Well, this guy seems to really have intentionally parked the boat for a good cleaning. How cool is that

That is absolutely the best way to mask ones stupidity or carelessness - act like it was deliberate.
xymotic and JulieMor like this.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
