Default All Good Info!

You have received a ton of good info...
My biggest advice is "Don't Panic"...
If you stay calm in any situation that may try to "rattle" you, you'll be better off. Especially in close quarters such as docking. Remember to take the boat out of gear. Sounds simple but too many inexperienced captains panic and forget that simple task! Rushing, jamming it in reverse and goosing it will create quick direction change, yes but it's not usually in a direction you're hoping for putting your boat in an undesirable position! As stated by someone above, the slower you hit something, the less damage you can expect!

Have a great time! Enjoy our big lake!
