Re: Docking for Dummies

Going out, burst of engine throttle to get the boat moving then reduce or neutral and you should have better steerage. In a cross wind, walking it out keeping the windward line should keep you off the pilings, mostly anyway

As mentioned, if things are not going well, engage foward with a burst to bring thisngs back, then try again

Returning, spring lines first then windward lines next.
