Piloting a boat at low speeds
Good piloting at slow speeds should be a repetition of the following process.
Caution! • Always motor at low speeds in harbors and marinas.
This is an important rule to obey and it shows that you are aware of the rules and etiquette of good seamanship. Making waves by motoring too fast in a marina or harbor can cause damage or scratching of the boats moored there or put people on the docks or boats there in serious danger. Local laws may also impose fines for not obeying harbor/marina speed limits.
