Answer by Desmond Last:

I was asked to do just that or about that whilst I was selling boats at my brokerage Sydney Boat Sales.

A potential boat buyer wanted a particular yacht but his wife could not handle the rocking motion. He asked us to tie the yacht up to the berth in such a way it would minimize the rocking. His wife only had to sit on the aft deck and drink a glass of wine with the sun going down. She would never want to leave the marina.
