Re: Don't "drive" your boat like it's a car!
Great topic! Have sailed Chinook (US Yacht 25) less than a year now. She's in a slip, and docking is one thing I'm definitely deficient at. It's usually solo. I've done all the beginner mistakes listed, including jumping on the dock in a hurry, then stopping her by brute force.
This year, plan on practicing extensively at it.
