A new online "DockIt!" game is the
latest of six free games available at BoatUS.com/games
that will keep
your passion for boating alive all winter long.
"To many boaters, docking is a
spectator sport," said BoatU.S. Program Manager Ted Sensenbrenner. "Now
you can compete for high scores and never worry about running into dock
pilings, scratching up your boat, or going aground. It's a great way
have fun and test your boat handling skills."
The DockIt! game allows users to
select one of three boats: stern drive powerboat, inboard powerboat,
and deep draft sailboat. Each vessel has its own unique handling
Players use the arrow buttons on a
standard computer keyboard to safely maneuver the boat into a slip — no
special gaming equipment is required. Three levels of play are offered,
and helpful boating tips also periodically appear on-screen.
Also at BoatUS.com/games
are Sudoku, word search, six boating jigsaw puzzles, a crossword
puzzle, and a solitaire version of Mahjong.
The DockIt! game was developed through
a partnership with MadMariner.com
