There aren't style points for docking
There certainly are points! A well executed, quiet docking is a thing of beauty. In any marina on the world, sitting on one's boat watching others dock (and critiquing) is a universal spectator sport.
IMO, docking is the culmination of boat handling skills. Two years ago in Annapolis' Ego Alley, I used every boat handling skill learned in 45 years on the water.. all in the course of 2 minutes undocking, docking, and bugging out.
