I don't even understand what the first captain was thinking. He's like, "When in doubt, throttle out!!" 😳😳😳
Second one looked like a VERY heavy cross wind was playing havoc .

On the sport fisher exclusively... At some point why don't you just shut off the engines and man the rovers?... Like maybe as soon as you donkey punched the first boat with your bow?

With boats that heavy and wind you aren’t moving them by hand..

Oh man do I hate seeing that .... makes me sick in my stomach. Wind, inexperience & booze are bad combos around docks.... and those sized boats really grab the wind.... even subtle breezes. I have a buddy who captains an 80' private yacht full time as well as driving the Newport Harbor Tour Yachts part time.... I've seen him do some amazing docking in tight spaces. So cool with the newer yachts controls.... he'll leave the helm and take a little handheld device outside and control thrusters, stern drive, etc.... technology on these luxury vessels is impressive.
