Re: Boat for Single-Handed
Jazz I really feel that way too. Wheel steering with the controls on the pedestal allow for fwd, rev, and neutral and with lots of practice one can approach a slip or dock with lots more control then an outboard. In the summer I practice every time I take a transient slip at Curtain's Wharf in Burlington NJ The current broadsides the keel as we approach the finger pier. timing speed and reverse are all important! The restaurant there over looks the docks so there is always an audience. I've only sailed on/off a dock a few times but it's not difficult if there aren't other boats around.
I've been at this about 5 yrs now. had a hunter 23 before my O30. nice boat but too small!
