Re: Learning to dock shorthanded

Capt Jack vids recommended above are very good at describing the spring line concept. As he repeats over and over, once you get it attached, the boat will stay put "until you run out of fuel". He's exactly correct. Perhaps the best thing he teaches is how to throw a line over a cleat on the dock with near 100% effectiveness.

Here is a link I found that has them available for download. Scroll down the page.
