Saw this today as well.. Watch a lot of these videos on YouTube as I deal with being in the off-season in Iowa 🤣 Seeing this reminds me why I tell people to sit down while docking just in case I have to make a quick maneuver.

What was with the captain reversing while the guy was trying to get back in the boat??? looked like a novice driver....(we all are initially).

I dont think he is novice as he manages okay after the incident. I think he might have panicked a bit because he was reversing rather aggressively and at 1:06 he noticed boat coming right behind him. Look at the timing. He turns his head and then immediately power ups.

The cross currant at that dock is not for the faint of heart. The boat crossing behind is not even close its the camera angle that compress the distance.
I'm with Julian needs more experience.............you can see he was drifting way to much and not using the jets enough to keep bow control. We have all been their done that.........at lease I have. People standing on back deck under power/docking NOT AT ALL a good idea.

I always put the Capitan in the fault chair, when someone goes overboard...........Back deck use under power is a no way no how.

Yes over the top narrating
