Mercury Marine, Sea Ray Boats and Erwin Marine Sales are hosting a test-drive event featuring the new Joystick Docking System Simulator. The in-water boat show features deals and demos on new Sea Ray boats and new Cypress Cay pontoons, along with a large selection of pre-owned boats.

“Both experienced and novice boaters are invited to the event and will appreciate the effortlessness of docking with this system,” Erwin Marine Sales said in a statement. “Mercury Marine has revolutionized the boating industry with the Axius/Zeus joystick docking technology. Mercury’s propulsion system promises to change your boating experience forever.”
