DOCKING.... I have owned trailerable outboard boats, how do I learn to dock a bigger cruising boat?
Believe it or not, larger boats are easier to handle! The propellers are under the boat, not bolted to the transom like an outboard and this design makes maneuvering much easier.

The engine gear reduction ratio is greater and the propellers are larger so the boat responds better when docking.

To help you appreciate how much easier docking large boats is we have produced a DVD detailing how to dock single engine, twin engine or POD drive boats.

You can order this DOCKING DVD right here but if you are interested in getting more information today, please contact Captain Chris, or check the calendar to see Captain Chris at one of the many boat shows throughout the country.
