They have launched boats over 300' the same way!

Any docking I will be doing in the future will be a breeze compared to this.

What a tight fit. I'm guessing that bridge puts a damper on the beam of any builds that must be moved through there. .

Didja notice the hull guards just above the waterline? And not sure but the gray 'striped' a couple of feet below the lower deck railing looks like it might be a guard?

Watch the vid between 43 and 46 seconds, it's a bit quick and hard to tell but he port side stern is jammed up against that drawbridge building pretty good- the hull guard and whatever that fender-fence is called is hopefully doing its job!

I took a screenshot and blew it up smile
