Dock on Command
Meridian’s exclusive Docking on Command (DOC) utilizes Side Power-manufactured bow and stern thrusters combined into a foolproof interface. The wedge-shape control mocks the shape of a boat. When switched on, both thrusters are in standby mode. To engage the bow thruster, simply slide the top of the button in the desired direction; slide the bottom of the button to activate the stern thruster. To use both thrusters simultaneously, slide the middle of the button. When I tried DOC I found I could spin the 391 in a tight 360-degree turn much like I could with a jet-drive joystick. The system is ideal for taking the hassle out of docking in tight spots or on windy days. —J.M.
