VIDEO: No joystick required

Good boat handling is always a pleasure to witness, as seen in this clip.

In the era of joystick maneuvering, it’s fun to see old-school twin-engine docking, working just the throttles and wheel — 45 seconds from start to finish for this Sea Ray 370 Sundancer with 8.2L Mercruiser V-drives.

“Just having fun and trying [to] win a bet as to how fast we could exit and then dock the boat,” reads the description for the video from Kevin McNally, a Chicago area yacht broker who knows his way around a dock.

“Not too much wind helped a little, but if you keep a boat moving this fast it doesn't really matter if the wind is blowing a little.”
