How to leave a parallel park on an Axopar 37
LEAVE A PARALLEL PARK
Wheel over to starboard/ port (opposite direction to dock).
One engine in reverse.
Using Bow thruster to push away from the dock.
Keep a good eagle eye on the dock to keep the boat parallel with the dock.
The engine will always have more thrust than the bow thruster so you will have to keep putting the engine in and out of gear to keep the boat parallel.
Then off you go.
It is almost too easy…
