Re: docking alone

Sounds like my mom. She is 85 now, buty in the day in her 60s she could stil,l drive a car with a clutch although her enormous Buick Esate Wagon ( boat) had automatic. My dad had a Porshe 911 and one of those old Trans Ams with the Big Red Bird on the Hood. My mom burned out 3 clutches in 4 years taking the Trans Am once in a while. What we didnt know is she couldnt put the car in gear with the clutch in reverse so she always parked in a parking lot was away from everyone so she wouldnt have to reverse this 450 hp monster car. I got a call on day to pick her up as someone had parked in front of her and she was aprked in. When I got there thats what happened she was on the out reaches of an empty parking lot with a VW bug parked in front of her and no one else within 200 yards. Reverse to my mom in this car and on our sailboat was another curse word
