Entering and leaving dock solo


You''re most welcome. That''s what these BB''s are for! The others have made good suggestions, too. It''s a learning process for how your boat responds in close quarters, how the wind and currents are, etc. It''s not rocket science obviously. I distilled about 12 years of singlehanding into my first response and I hope it does help you. Each time will give you more confidence. Frankly, at this point I almost prefer leaving and entering the slip by myself. Something seems to go wrong if I have too many hands helping. Good luck!
