How to Pull into a Boat Slip

Pulling into a marina boat slip can be intimidating for even experienced boaters, but you don’t have to get nervous at your Chesapeake Bay marina when it’s time to slide your boat into position. Watch this video to learn how to make boat slip parking easy and stress-free.

The key to conquering any marina boat slip is to take your time. Trying to pull in too fast doesn’t give you enough time to make adjustments. Pull up horizontally to the boat slip, and when your shoulder is parallel with the first edge, begin to gradually turn your boat so that you are slowly backing into the slip. Change gears to move forward and backward as needed to line up as precisely as possible until you are ready to reverse in easily.
