I had similar experience yesterday but with a stronger current, smaller boat and didn't quite pull it off as smoothly like that guy regretably. Guess I started the turn a little late! While not as smooth as his, I only have one screw so that added to my screw up! No ding, no scratch, no damage...except to my pride!

I was on my friend Austin's Bayliner 4588 for the Christmas Parade in Portland this year and saw him pull the same trick except there was a boat in the slip in front of him. He then backed it into the slip behind him. I asked him if he wanted me to get the lines and he said "Naw my wife's got them." and she had. That was experienced boat handling. They are a great team.
