About Boat Docking Simulation

You have always wanted to know how to dock a boat? These techniques, as well as all other techniques are included in this interactive "Boat Docking Simulation" course.

All maneuvering techniques can be viewed step by step by means of interactive films or in the simulator, where you can try it under different conditions, like prop walk, wind, leeway, advance and more.

For example, various possible docking techniques are presented and explained. In addition to the basics such as boat types, leeway, prop walk (wheel effect), also common rookie mistakes are presented and explained. This is perfectly suited for presentation purposes.

It also contains exercises that can be performed with the crew whilst on board.

I find this to be just what I need to stay in practice. Not sailing every weekend as i did before I was looking for a sim to keep the many maneuvers and technical situational awareness challenges that happen...
