I use my feet....and like others, do it barefoot...but the added thing is I have to back my boat into the slip...which is a whole new wrinkle...basically, take it slow, but be sure that you have enough headway to maintain control...and make sure your crew can leap tall buildings (or at least clear the gap between the boat and the dock).
