You really can't complain much for something that's free. But my constructive criticism would be that the point of view should be from the helm with the ability to look behind you, vice the current birds eye view. Also, it'd be neat to have a twin engine option since most boats (aside from trawlers and blowboats) that really worry about docking issues are twin engined.

I got up to be 5th, but then it said I had to be a registered user to play. It is a good concept, but not like real docking. A helm view would make it more realistic.

More like a computer keyboard manipulation test. I don't have up and down and left and right arrows on my boat!
