Definitely a set up. The deployed lines have plain loops, those shown locking on the cleats are not. The trajectory of the boat approaching the slip is not good and will require correction. Nicely edited for a bit of amusement.

There was a small series of these videos a while ago. They were "made for AV-OG-TIL, a Norwegian NGO, working to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol. The aim is to raise awareness around the dangers of intoxication while operating a boat."

Re: Docking is an Art Form

I heard a boating instructor once say, "When docking, or undocking, if you aren't bored, then you are doing something wrong."
