Ahoy, elixer84. I single handed most of the time on my boat. I started out picking up the
ball by coasting up to it into the wind, tying off the tiller, then running forward and doing the foredeck thing. Later, I found a way that I liked better. I would run the bow line under the pulpit, outside the lifeline stanchions to where I was sitting in
the cockpit. Then I''d ghost up to it, reach over and snag it with with the hook and make fast. With a little practice it is a piece of cake. Regards. dhd
