    I found a great little game online that helps teach proper approach and docking.

    When you hit the dock there is a terrible audible crash! Cool!

    Boy, I tell ya what. Just hanging around the boat ramps and watching some people in those brand new boats each year get comical. i could pass out flyers to this little game and hopefully make them experts..... on second thought, seems some of those boaters need common sense first with some of the boneheaded things they try. Don't think this game teaches that.:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    I'd rather see a course on trailer backing.
    Seems if you can back a trailer down a ramp lickety split you can more then likely load the same way.
