Re: Docking stern in, strong crosswind
Pull in bow first. Turn her around later, after the wind has died.
Do it the logical, easy way. Leave the macho, exhibitionism to the adolescents.
That would have been nice if we had a float. We were in San Francisco Bay Fisherman's wharf. Just 2 pilings on one side and a steel ladder on the far left side of the slip which you couldn't get to except from the stern of the boat, hence the need to back in, no heroics, just necessity.
