Re: Help me find my next boat 24-29 foot

Nice boats. Nothing wrong with Cats. Want my docking advice? SLOOOOW. I creep in if I can. Coast to a stop. Finger piers? It's easy to pull alongside, stop and pull her in. I single handed a 30 Cal 3000 miles. There have been VERY few times I've relied on reverse to stop in a tight spot. SLOOOW! I don't know that I've ever backed into a finger pier...I always pull her back.
