Actuall when I came back in yesterday I backed in and it was a lot easier. I came in slower which helpded a lot. After I made my turn I used bursts in reverse to kick the stern over and it seemed to work well. Being at the helm near the pilings let me see better what was going on also and feel more in control. It should make leaving the slip easier also. Thanks all for the help.
