Cant work out how to push the bow or stern out as I would normally do when leaving a pontoon??

 

Edit - ah right you don't have too, there is more than enough clear space just to move forward.

Just had a go, I think more reality could be added like ...

 

Fisher'ists sitting on the moorings

Locks being reversed in your face as you approach

A bladeful at the exact moment you commit to turning into the marina

Doggy doo where you tie and untie your ropes

 

I have to say I thought it very good and the responses quite realistic.

Only another 87 days to go (at least). Not sure if my sanity will survive the 'music'

How do you raise the paddles?

there is a control panel top left of screen, use the arrows to select the gates or paddles

You can even pretend to be a drunken hireboater!

It's not realistic ... the gates don't crash open when you ram them at full chat with the lock empty.

 

... er, a friend told me that ...

How did you do so well on the BCN Challenge without knowing that!

Honestly....

 

I have the stern mooring line on, the other mooring lines off, full chat in reverse and the bow isn't coming out! Must be a hell of a cross wind in this marina

I've not dared try it yet - can you race GRPs for mooring spots?

Not sure but you can race rubber ducks - just don't tell @Dr Bob!

That duck is in self isolation. It reckons it's got a bad throat.
