Anything obvious that could have been done differently,
Absolutely... loaded snd rolled out all the portside canon and in unison fired and kept firing until clear. Added benefit is that would have vapourised the evidence, the  pesky camera guy and all witnesses.

What is wrong with the dumb bint in the pink shirt?

How about you start up that floating caravan and GTF out of the way rather than screaming into the wind and waiting for the inevitable?

(I s'pose it is expecting too much for the other people on the dock to pull that poor wooden yacht forward and avoid those expensive crunchy noises.)

Pretty freaky to watch the bowsprit twang the rig of Intrepid. Had the hull made contact with her it would have been game over for a wood 12M

the chicka on the motorboat .....perhaps if she had a clue that they weren;t doing this on purpose she would have been more level headed....perhaps not...

They did have it under control. Only a couple of minor scratches on the Hazard thanks to the precise use of yachts as fenders. It could have been a much bigger scratch.

Leaning into the situation and going full pirate never occured to me.  They could have seized motor yacht lady’s dog and pressed it into service as a deck dog for the Perry.

Why are people who film these things with their phones so silly.  Honestly it is not that hard.  

Get a grip on yourself camera person.  Either put down your phone and help, or at least spare the world your commentary and panic.  Drama major perhaps?

 
According to local News 10 report two dock lines wrapped around both props. With a professional crew of 12 aboard?  Really? 

Putting Engine in Gear 101...make sure all lines are aboard and clear.

Geeez or is that Grrrr.

I hear there is a job opening for a Captain's position.

Anybody ever hear of an anchor?  Promptly deployed when first lost control of engines might have helped mitigate the shenanigans...repeated 5 blasts of the ships whistle wouldn't have hurt either.
