well welcome back everybody it is your boy Broncos guru coming back at you again I always get comments on Facebook and Instagram telling me that people just got their boats and they want to make sure they don't end up on boneheaded boaters of the week figure why not let's make a couple videos to help keep people off of it so we'll start off this week with how not to dock your boat what we'll do is we'll walk through some of these people that we're gonna see over the next few minutes some of the docking mistakes they're making will explain what they are and how you can avoid them we'll start with our first boater here and they've got several mistakes going on the first one right here is it looks like they're
00:30
trying to do a pivot line up front with the lady that's on the dock but pivot lines typically only work well from the rear of the boat of the MiG cleat their second mistake they have going on which is probably the bigger mistake is typically anning docking situation you want the nose of the boat to go on into the current here you can tell that they're battling a current now they've gotten the boat sideways and they're getting the full force of the current pushing on the boat and with this pivot cleat all it's gonna happen now when he puts the boat in reverse it's going to flow with the current and the boat's gonna go backwards with the current anytime you're in a current situation definitely make sure you can get that nose in here they probably should have backed into the slip or if the lady
01:01
would have put the pivot line on the mid cleat or the rear cleat they would have had a much easier time getting this over onto the dock as well our second Voter here makes an all-too-common mistake he's getting his boat ready and he doesn't go around and do a full final inspection to make sure that all the lines are off and here as you can see by the arrow one of those portside lines is still attached to the dock at the mid cleat so of course this guys gonna go ahead and put this boat into gear this line is gonna draw tight and it's gonna force the boat to turn now actually we'll give this guy some props because I've been on some boats and seeing some guys do this situation before and typically your gut
01:32
instinct is to gun the gas when it happens because you can't understand why the boats doing what it's doing this guy kind of takes it easy and just slows down realize that something was wrong puts it into neutral relaxes and he does eventually figure out that it was a line as attached here we have the distracted boater this guy is backing up to a dock but this boat he's just picked up and it's his first time driving it so he's kind of more interested in what's going on the boat and what's actually happening around the dock and he's actually coming in a little bit hot right here he's not even looking back and all of a sudden it's too late and they are into the dock always pay attention when you're around the dock
02:03
guys and this is what it looks like when you're not really ready to approach a dock but you come in anyway this catchman should have stopped let everybody get everything out and get everything organized before they approach the dock so should I had somebody assigned to jump off the back of this boat and grab the line instead they're just tossing lines off the back of the boat and there's nobody up at the front to help in case there's any issues and of course there is and they're already into another boat whenever you're approaching the dock make sure you've got everything out and ready to go make sure everybody knows what they're supposed to be doing as well before you get there also another key thing when you're docking is
02:34
go ahead and approach the docks sober I don't believe this guy's doing that this guy right here spends about five minutes which I'm not gonna show all five minutes playing pinball around this marina and just banging into boats he can't seem to figure it out I don't know if he's got a mechanical failure of some kind going on but everything he's trying to do just is not working out in his favor he's being very heavy-handed on the throttles and he's just causing damage if you run into a situation like this where you're causing damage don't be afraid to ask for help get some other people involved maybe somebody else will come help you out
03:05
with their boat and they will help get you back into your slip watching this video these guys actually appeared to know what they were doing they started off way over here to the left because they knew they're gonna fight a heavy current neighbor to let the current bring them back in when all of a sudden it appears they've had some kind of mechanical failure all of a sudden this boat is set adrift if you ever run into the situation always remember your boat does have a break it's called an anchor so if they would have set the anchor way before they got to these boats they would not have had this accident right here right now they're completely at the mercy of the sea so once again if you ever find
03:40
yourself in a situation a marina that you were powerless drop your anchor and it will help you out this is one of those docking situations that most voters hate you're coming into a fuel dock in between boats you've got a heavy current and wind at the bow of the boat so you're coming in at an angle you feels good but all of a sudden right what you're about to get to the dock and the boat gets the full effect of the current wind the bow will start to come out what you need to do in this situation especially if you've got a friend like he does go ahead and give a few blips of reverse allowing that friend to get off the rear of the boat
04:10
tie a pivot line off the rear of the boat and just a few bursts of forward throttle will actually push the nose back into the dock this builder really does have a lot going on but the thing I want you to take away from this guy is if you look over to the left there you're gonna notice that windows all busted out what they did here is they didn't take into account of the size of the boat that they were gonna be docking next to whenever your docking next to a dock or a boat you always want to kind of measure everything up and make sure that you've got the correct bumpers and the correct heights to do this so what happened here is they came in on this
04:42
boat his gunnel was higher than the boat that's docking next to him and when they came in on it they're gonna want right through that window whatever you do always pay attention to Heights it's very easy to misinterpret these things you wanna make sure you have the correct bumpers in the correct locations to dock whatever your docking next to so there's no damage to your vessel or the dock or any other boats thanks for watching guys I hope you got a few pointers out of this video if you haven't yet check us out on Facebook or Instagram let us know what you thought of this if you thought we should do some more videos like this or maybe we should just keep with the rail candy and the boneheaded buggers also if you haven't
