Re: Mostly singlehanded...what lines should I run aft?

Great ad for the 360 docking. Nice bit of kit.

Notice the Gramps left the kid on board when they went? Was the kid Roger the Cabin Boy? Sent to the bilges with rags to clean? Sold to ummmm those foreigners? Chucked overboard?

Come back in 20 years time and all new boats will have that. Or maybe even Dynamic Positioning.

Detachable helm wheels too. Just have one in the lazarette in case of emergency, but the rest of the time you just have the joystick and auto pilot and have a clearer cockpit space.

Like GPS and AIS advances in technology only enhance safety, increase abilities and add enjoyment... And all three mean an increase in "seamanship" as far as I am concerned.
