s/vchaser is on a distinguished road
My wife and only sailing partner has ms. She can tufn a winch if i wrap the line for her but docking and undocking is all on me. Were in a slip like the op talked about. If the conditions are such that i cant safely do it then there is something my wife can do. She can call the marina office on the vhf and ask for help. They are always more than happy to. If one of my neighbors hits my boat then their better have been a real good reason why. Hes still going to pay to have any damage professionally repaired. People keep forgetting that you are responsible for anything caused by your boat wether it be your wake breaking something on another boat or being stupid coming into the slip.
