Boating Fail: Bad at Boating

There’s more to good boating than just working the throttle.

Hammering the throttle and shooting across the water is probably the easiest part of boating. Yes, you can eventually reach unsafe speeds, but pushing the throttle all of the way forward doesn’t take much skill. Things like docking in tight spaces are what make boating very tricky at times. It also makes boating very rewarding when you get it right. When you don’t? You end up as a Boating Fail like the boater below.
