First time singlehanding, bad things happen, the sound of breaking fiberglass, etc

I've used a line looped around and back to the boat rather then tied to a dock cleat. Then after the boat swings I'd just let it slip off and haul it in. Using spring lines is or can be a fun learning curve.--Denise, that's brilliant! I'll have to try that. That would alleviate needing some to throw you the line when you cast off.
