Show Dates: September 13-16, 2018

Docking Seminar and Live Demonstration

Docking can be nerve wracking – especially in tight spaces, unfamiliar marinas or when the wind or current kicks up. The ability to confidently and competently maneuver a boat in close quarters is the hallmark of a competent skipper and requires a set of skills that usually take years to perfect. Docking is a challenge but you can learn to do it!

This FREE 25 minute classroom training includes a 20 minute in-water demonstration.

Must purchase an adult e-ticket to the Boats Afloat Show and select the free ticket for the Docking Class in order to participate. A limited number of spots available per day.

Meet at the Boats Afloat Show Office (Suite A-190, to the left of the show's main entrance tent) 10 minutes prior to the class's start to obtain your wristband for show grounds. For more information please call (206) 748-0012.
