Hi BruceB believe me when a 5.4 metre Northcraft on its berth is rammed in the rear by a very large Redbay cabin RIB attempting to park up it does a lot of damage, the result was a boat that constantly wanted to turn to port!
I will not say who done it on here as you would be very surprised! I will tell you when I see you.
Unfortunately it has happened 2 often as the pontoon is not that long. You may find this hard to believe but a lot of people are not very good at berthing boats. We generally hide our boats away somewhere when it gets busy but that weekend we are busy too.
Our favourite mishap is people tying their boats up and them ending up on top of our engine hoods. I dunno about you but if i berth in a marina or anywhere else I use springs and give the boat a good ol tug one way and the other to make sure that if there is any wash or wind that my boat does not end up on top of someone elses.
The hardest part to accept is that when people do this they seem to think not a lot of it whereas if it was say their shiny new car that was parked upon they would go berserk. Im too soft you see!
Anyway theres no real problems, as I say we get loads of visitors and as long as a bit of thought goes into the berthing it works out well.
