Docking Like a ProDuring the Boating Ontario Conference in early December, Sara Anghel from NMMA Canada presented valuable Boater retention resources including the Discover Boating digital video series of educational videos.

Recently, Discover Boating launched a new episode – a beginner’s guide on how to dock a boat – in its five-part digital video series ‘Boating Basics: Pro Tips’ powered by Progressive® to support ongoing efforts around boater engagement and education.

In episode three, “6 Steps to Docking a Boat Like a Pro,” boaters will learn simple tips to prepare for any docking scenario and feel more confident at the helm whether docking in a slip, coming alongside a dock or docking against the wind or current.

Industry stakeholders are encouraged to share the video with their customers, on their social channels, websites and in emails to help engage, educate and connect with customers.

Additional shareable boating resources from DiscoverBoating.com include:

• How to Dock a Boat
• Boat Fenders 101: Tying, Placement & Usage
• How to Tie Up a Boat to a Dock
• How to Dock a Pontoon Boat
