Default test you docking skills

I saw this posted on the sportsman forum.

If you go to the slip thats blinking, once you've done it, its an advertizement you can close.
But you can go park in all the other slips and keep playing.

Pretty cool.

"A and Z" are forward and back on the port motor
up and down arros are forward and back on the starboard motor
space bar thows it back in nuetral.

Its addicting

That is pretty cool!

I got a $5.00 off deal if I purchase $100 from them as I docked everyplace they told me to. Not so much as a scratch.

Well, I guess I need a few minor repairs after that first attempt. Did not find neutral til it was too late.

Neat game.

Did you get that in the settlement where one of the other cartoon boats ran into you?

BTW - click on the controls Icon and you can change the keys for the gears and neutral. I use the numeric keypad with 7 and 4 for port and 9 and 3 for starboard and the 5 key for neutral. Helps your skills a lot right there. Not that I ever played it or anything.

Nah, if it had been a Bayliner it would have shown the boat sinking after you ran into something.

I can understand the confusion though, cartoon boat / Bayliner. Alright, did ya'll back 'em into the slips like you were supposed to?

switching the controls simplified things.. i used F and V for port engine, and H and B for starboard, space bar being all stop...it seems a lot easier to dock a twin screw boat in reality then run this damn program! great find!

Cooper, did you make that game?

Didn't you have a fishing game a couple years ago.
little boat you drove around a lake and casted for shadow spots in the water.
I remember that taking up half my day at work

Need a good fiberglass repair shop, preferably with a volume discount. I know I'm better on the water.
