  1. Nice overview you two. Love the overhead perspective, thanks to the drone.

    My dock is perpendicular to a current that runs 3 knots in one direction on an ebb tide and 4 knows in the other on a flood tide.
    In my case I can almost ignore the wind and focus exclusively on the current. The most brilliant docking is when the current is going into the dock and I can drift sideways gently. Looks like I have thrusters (which I don’t.)

    Anyway, would look forward to seeing your how-to book.

  2. Now that’s a real treat! Clear and brief. Thanks a lot! You are absolute legends! Can’t wait for the next one …
