Good luck with your choice!
You said "back up into" a slip. We've only gone in bow first.Is there a reason to go in stern first? Is there an advantage to do so?

Arrow Re: 352 port screens

Hi Shari,

The screens don't use any attachment hardware.

The screens are labeled "outside" on one side,
Open the side window (nautical term is 'portlight'),
Go outside on deck,
Gently insert the screen between the outer frame and the rubber gasket with the "outside" label facing out. The small tabs and the raised edge around the screen do a pretty good job of holding the screen in place.

The screens can be left in place when the port is closed. Like everything on a boat, the sun's UV will degrade the plastic screens so you might consider removing them if away from the boat for extended periods of time.

Headed for Ludington and points north this Thursday for an 18 day cruise. Hope you are enjoying Wanderlust.

People often find it more convenient to get on/off the boat by walking thru the open transoms. This works well when you have a floating dock, not so good when you have fixed height docks like you and I have.

Re: 352

Backing into a slip makes it easier to connect/disconnect the shore power, easier access to the hose for washing deck & filling water tanks, easier to get on/off at the cockpit (most use the side at the cockpit for access), easier to leave the dock, better to socialize with other friendly slipholders and passers-by on our dock. Our marina has fixed docks and 95% of the boats are in the slip stern first.
