A Test Drive Without A Car

Oh, check this out, Steve wanted to turn his boat round today and asked Dave if he'd like to do the honours, (so he could check out how effective using a bow thruster is). This was also Dave’s first time driving another widebeam, so here it all is in full Technicolor, he did real well too:
Arms all over the place at first…
007
Got it now…
008
Coming away from the jetty…
010
Turning…
012
Too late to change your mind now…
014
Coming about…
016
Backing in, bow thruster to port a bit…
018
Thumbs up, this is easy…
019
Well they both arrived back safely from their little excursion doing a 180. {Boys and their toys} I was quite proud of Dave, he made it look easy, well that’s the whole idea! Guess it’s because he’s so used to wrestling without one aboard TT? Ha Ha…
