We have a similar docking situation and found a spring line is an ideal solution. We use a boat hook to pick up a pre-rigged spring line secured to the upwind floating dock. The spring line has a spliced loop which is simply placed over a midship cleat. Your motor will bring you up against the upwind finger pier, allowing you to gracefully step off the boat and secure your dock lines.
