Very basic PB2 stuff, how to come along side, and don't drive into other boats
I would not want to put something like that on public viewing

Seems he's thought the same, it's listed as private when I tried to watch.

Not very impressive from what I could see on my phone screen , but I fear not much differant to what happens in every marina/port every weekend at the start of the season.

That 'first weekend of the summer & I've forgotten any common sense' thing going on .....

Lack of skills

One of the easiest things a operator learns to do is dock his boat, if you can't get that down what hope does the operator have when he encounters something that really challenges his seamanship? Answer: not much! The second operator appears equally inept (too much throttle) but this might have been staged as the second boat backs off the throttle at the correct time nudging the first boat accurately towards the dock. I didn't hear any verbal exchanges between the pilots as would normally occur between people when these kind of things happen, suggesting they knew each other. If it's real it is pretty comical...
