Re: Docking single handed...

If it's a public marina or has a gas dock, don't be afraid to ask for help via phone or radio. I've found the college kids with summer jobs often clueless on how to tie a knot or anything, but always helpful and cheerful. Another trick is to give them a tip that's a bit excessive. $10 or more and it's likely that they will remember your boat and look for it in the future.
