Re: Docking in current

This idea is good, but with the tumblehome on your boat, there's no good rub rail set on the pole. I've used fender boards, they work great if you can make sure they set against the pole, if they ever get caught when you miss, you've got a bigger mess (don't ask how I know). Maybe a long fender board plus this technique or big fender hung lengthwise at the fattest part of the topside bulge.

You've got over 2kts, not easy!!!
