Totally agree with skill, you'd be suprised how quick a vessel that size would turn with transverse thrust alone, once you've got her trembling whilst pulling astern, then half ahead with the starboard engine,,, hard to say if said vessel has bow thrusters, i couldn't see much wash from the bow erea. hats off very well handled.
If it was luck then the cameras wouldn't be so well placed.
