Just asking for directions is a sign of weakness.... So to to call the marina in advance "Hi, I'm coming it to dock and still a bit nervous... would you have any experienced dock hands available? My boats name is... "
This summer I made it point to try using spring lines. To get off the club dock when other boats are lined up with about 3ft between them, I had friends stand by while I tried...It works, IF! the current and prop wash are in my favor. I've yet to try backing out with the current on the transom...
Slips seem easier for me for some reason.
