My docking issue is totally different that what has been mentioned. We dock, perhaps once every few months - lets see Panama, Tahiti, then Australia - that is three times in many thousand miles. I get out-of-practice. I wonder what people think when they see a boat that is obviously a long way from home doing an awkward job of docking - and yes, I do it slowly.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
