Power Boat Docking Challenge
Exciting radio-controlled boat docking game lets you test your navigational skills and compete for a chance to earn the Power Boat Docking Champion title! Race against the clock using an actual full-size boat helm to steer your craft down a 20-ft. "lake" to the marina and into a slip. Best time wins—but be careful—any contact with the slip counts against your time. Whether you're an experienced skipper or novice boater, it's a fun way to show off your skills or become more confident at the helm. New-England-boat-show
