* I have looked at a few singlehanded docking solutions for other sailboats. Seems knowing the balance point bow to stern is pretty important. Does anyone know this for a PSC37? Any suggestions on docking a PSC37 singlehanded?

SC:

The balance point seemed to us to be a few feet abaft the mid ships cleat.
You can see it below by the forward gate stanchion:



We found that the t track mounted Schaefer cleats worked great for docking. And as they're adjustable, you can fine tune that balance point.



There was a great article by Evans Starzinger, “Short-handed Docking Made Easier,” Cruising World, July 2007, that I'd recommend.
