Wifey B: Wow....that shivers me timbers. So lucky to survive. I'm sure survival time in those waters would be very short. I'm just glad they were rescued so promptly. :)

Also, one can add Yacht Controller or Dockmate or additional controls or docking stations to a boat fairly easily so they can dock from the side deck or stern or bow.
