Yamaha’s Helm Master Takes Guesswork, Stress Out of Docking

Seasoned boaters know all too well the nuances of maneuvering a big boat in tight spaces. Running longer distances, handling big waves, and more room and storage for gear and passengers are advantages of a big boat. What’s not so great about boats powered by multiple outboards is when it comes time to return to the dock. Maneuvering the big boat into tight spaces, and into waves and current, takes years of experience. Unless you are a seasoned boat captain that is not an option, at least for the average boater.
