Still see people tying off their boats tho, and then this happens:
No fun at all, and the damage can be pretty bad
When it does happen, use a knife to cut the lines, never
try to undo them by hand (I think the guy in the video tried that first; I hear people yelling "mes" which is Dutch for "knife") until the boat behind him handed him a knife.
Also be aware of how the boat will fall down, so you don't fall overboard
like this poor guy. He was lucky he only got wet, and didn't hurt himself.
