Approaching the dock — particularly in front of a crowded marina — can be one of the most nerve-racking experiences on the water. But it really shouldn't be. I've got ten simple rules that, if followed to the letter, will not only make you better at close-quarters maneuvering and docking but will also make you a better all-around boater.
Rule No. 1: Never approach the dock faster than you are willing to hit it.
Rule No. 2: There is room for only one captain on your vessel.
Rules No. 3-10: See rules 1 and 2; when in doubt, refer to rule No. 2.
Well, there's actually a little more to it than that. But by taking a measured, methodical approach, boaters can tackle even the most challenging docking situations and come out looking like a pro — even as the local peanut gallery looks on with their scorecards.
