Mercury Marine released a video showcasing its Skyhook virtual anchoring system.

"I’m not that good of a boater,” Fort Lauderdale boater Tom Glenos said in a statement. "When you dock the boat [with Skyhook], you don’t need to make three different passes trying to dock the boat."

"From the consumer standpoint, folks that don't have as much boating experience or are new to boating, it tends to make it easier," said Tom Shelton of Lauderdale Marine.

Using a boat’s GPS system, Skyhook pinpoints its position and moves the drives independently to maintain the correct heading.
