If it's a "home" dock, I leave the lines on the dock, then back in at a slight angle to the dock, straightening as my rear quarter comes to the end of the pier, with as little speed as possible. I then put it in neutral, hop off to the dock and walk it back. Secure the rear, then front.

At a "strange" dock, when possible, I use the same procedure, but have the lines secured on the boat.

True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
