How do I dock singlehandled?
1973 27' Catalina with Tiller
Outboard 8hp Tiller Engine + Electric Inboard Drive
Cleats on bow and stern only. 3 side bumpers.
My slip is a 25' and a few spaces down the dock from the channel. No corner rollers. I usually keep all but 1 of the lines left tied on the dock, so that when I'm shorthanded (only 2 of us) its easy to snap them on coming back in. When coming home, the wind is directly into my face and of course the opposite when leaving.
I have a few ideas on the best ways (check list/protocol) to dock, but would love the advice from our community.
