Tempest is on a distinguished road
I like it! .. If you set the 1st line up as a spring line, short enough to keep you from hitting the dock...you could probably leave the engine in reverse as you walk forward with the windward bow line ( so you'd pick up two lines). get the windward bow line thru a chock and control the bow, while the boat reverses herself on the spring.
