Maneuvering a boat away from the dock at the beginning of the day and back into a berth or slip at the end of the day are two of the most challenging and important aspects of driving a boat. Failure to learn of and take precautions to safely and properly dock a boat, for instance, can result in serious injury.
Passengers should always be advised to keep their hands, legs, and fingers inside the boat, but crew members should heed this advice as well. In addition to following this golden rule, no crew members should ever be made to feel like they have to do something that they are not comfortable with. Everyone should also have a seat or some sort of grip or rail that offers stability while the boat is being docked.
Other ways to keep the risk of boating injury to a minimum include investing in boater-friendly marina storage and taking care to ensure that your boat is well-maintained at all times.
