There was one on my boat from a prior owner...took it out as it was a power and space hog and I had no need for it even on a 52' boat. Setting aside the expense issue, the only time I would consider one is if I had a slip that I wanted to BACK into and current/wind was an issue continuously, OR if I had a disability which prevented me from being able to quickly control the boat and do the docklines as seems to be the case here.
