Whew! At the end of the day on the river here I finally found the nerve to encourage and help my GF Michele approach and dock alongside the floating docks at my YC. Slow and slower! I showed her how to allow for the momentum of the boat and how to "bump" into gear to bring her in slow as possible. then explained how you can to use reverse to stop the boat dead, and how the prop wash (to port on my boat) will almost always bring the transom over. It went well with no mishaps.

Ladies have you had similar experiances teaching other ladies?
