Boat docking runs in this captain's blood


The 41st annual Boat Docking Contest was held Sunday in Crisfield, Md.

In the popular regional event, commercial watermen compete in timed boat-docking intervals for cash prizes. They run a short course at high speeds, then back into a slip and tie up.

The event draws big crowds to the dock to watch some impressive boat handling.
