These are inspiration posts for a new boat owner who will probably be single-handing a bit. I have a simple question, what are the best techniques for picking up a mooring single-handed. Also what are the best ways to shove off from a mooring single-handed. I've done this several times in a Rhodes 18 (yes 18) but don't feel that I am good at it. I would walk it back until I felt cnfortable cranking up the engine. Or sail off at times. Now I have a Luders 33. Seems like I should have better technique for the bigger less forgiving boat.
