Re: 352

Backing into a slip makes it easier to connect/disconnect the shore power, easier access to the hose for washing deck & filling water tanks, easier to get on/off at the cockpit (most use the side at the cockpit for access), easier to leave the dock, better to socialize with other friendly slipholders and passers-by on our dock. Our marina has fixed docks and 95% of the boats are in the slip stern first.
