I have to say that my docking is something that I'm truly proud of. Nice slow approach, no-touch on either side, a bit of reverse to stop forward motion and bring the stern to port, step off and secure the lines. No drama. Of course, it doesn't hurt that a Catalina 36 handles like a Chevrolet under power....totally predictable.
