why is your wife stepping off the boat BEFORE you're tied off?? I've never understood why folks step off, grab dock lines and hand back to boat. IF it's your 'home' slip aren't the lines attached at the dock? Sail in and reach out with a boat hook, grab lines and pull aboard and tie off. THEN step off. No drama.
Most of the time, the boat is stationary when we step off. It is easier to step off, and then place the dock line on the boats cleat than try to grab a line with a boat hook. However, it is worth a try.
