Our slip requires a ladder to go from the boat to the slip.
No jumping. We have to grab our dock lines with our boat pole.

When approaching a transient mooring, you never know what you might find.

A mistake we make is that the person with the dock lines is standing either too far forward or too far aft. I keep telling them to stand amidship. I can get the fat part of the boat close and you step off.

I too have gotten close and we start to drift off. I yell, "quick, jump.!"
Opps my bad.
