Coming Alongside a Pontoon into the wind or tidal stream can be done very simply, safely and easily using a technique known as ferry gliding. By using the element/s to control your speed and direction with gentle throttle use you can 'crab' your powerboat into a pontoon to ensure you arrive gently. This is a very non-stressful way of getting your boat alongside! In this video we had 35 knots of wind blowing (Force 6) so using another technique may have been a little more speedy / stressful !
