Your right.
I must have watched that three times and I missed it until you said something. Very funny. Knocked him right over.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned using a spring line to slow and stop the boat.
Obviously works easier w/ crew on board: Rig fenders on the side of the boat that will end up next to the dock. Lots of them. Drop sails as you approach the slip, have a springline w/ a nice big bight led from somewhere amidships to a cleat. As you enter the slip, toss the bight over a post or cleat, as the boat gets in the slip, SLOWLY snub up on the line; a turn around the cleat is all it takes, gently applying some pressure. Once the boat is stopped you can then get a bow and stern line ashore.

I used to bring in a 43' Hans Christian (IE 30K+ lbs!) and stop her this way w/ just one other person. Course I had a motor, but still had to stop the boat and prop walk made it a pain. Once stopped w/ the springline, turn the rudder away from the dock, engage in FWD at idle speed and you could hold the boat OFF the dock until it was tied up. Pretty cool and the WOW! factor always impressed the ladies!

Yes. As long as you can get that line ashore. The problem is getting it fast to something, and quickly.

The blue sailboat capsizes because the stern isn't in the water, and can't provide the form stability that it would normally.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Quick cliff notes, it is a collection of people racking nuts on rails, falling overboard, and then this clip of a sailboat sorta backwards on a trailer or pier or something ( I can't see well enough), with guys trying to heave-ho a lady off the bow of the boat into the water. It lists a little, maybe 15 degrees, then FLIP a fast roll right into the water like I've never seen before. It almost looked like the keel fell off.

It looks like about a 17-19 footer, might have a iron swing keel and the keel is up!!
