Re: Scary night sail
David, why not use a spring line? I set one up on our boat, and in the 3 times I've docked, I found it worked perfectly. I "just" have to line myself up on the piling near the finger, then grab the line and hook it on the cleat. After that, the boat's momentum snugs me against the finger and I can get the stern and bow lines on. For me, it's spring line (starboard side), starboard stern line, bow lines, then port side stern line.
