Did the skipper NOT have sailing experience? When you have to "work with the wind", you gain a greater respect for Mother Nature. That boat was SO large, the skipper might not have seen that he had docking-help from another boat!

That was sarcasm, right? The video showed the boat crew had set a huge ball-fender between the two boats—early-on.

Speaking of sailing and powerboats, disabled USN submarine R-14 set improvised sail, and sailed its return 120 miles back to its home port!
