That is my first line that I grab to ease her into the slip. I do not have roller furling, and I thought that would make things more difficult. It hasn't, and I've learned to work around it.
This is the first boat that i've owned with a self tacking jib. That, along with running all lines aft, make this a treat.
Shout if I can help.

What kind of boat do you show in your photo? It looks very nice.
