crew that knows how to dock needed near Boston

Hi,
I just finished the closing on my new-to-me boat, a Gulfstar 37, and I intend to bring it home this weekend. I have never docked a boat this large before. My cousin who has experience was supposed to help, but now he is unavailable. I'm seeking someone who knows what they're doing to assist me in docking (I'll have plenty of people available, just none experienced in docking, or even sailing really). I'm looking more for someone to guide me through it than someone to do it for me. I may be able to pay a modest fee or provide some beer or something. The trip would be from Marblehead to Constitution Marina in Boston, probably starting Sat morning. Any takers? Thanks!

Congrats on the boat. I might be able to help. PM me with contact info. Just curious, what travel arrangements are you making to get to Marblehead?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

denise, I have some pics I took during the survey up on my website. I don't know how you were searching, since you said you can't find her. I just named her when I did the closing documents/documentation documents. The documentation won't be in the CG database yet. Her former name is Cadence, and as that is what's on the transom, I think we'll be using that name for the duration of the journey home, lest someone get confused when we start calling mayday...

It is a fairly common name, but I came up with it independently. Apparently there is even already a Laissez Faire with a home port of Boston, but since they aren't required to be unique I'm not worried. I called the marina I'll be staying at and also emailed the local liveaboards list and neither had ever heard of the "other" Laissez Faire.

There is a large sailing community at Constitution. Check out the Yahoo group 'Boston Liveaboards'.

Not a big help for bringing your boat home, but practice is a big help. I have two spherical fenders, some line, and a couple of grapnel anchors. Drop them somewhere out of the way and practice coming alongside, driving between forward and backward, touching a fender with bow and transom, and generally learning to move you boat around at low speed in a small area. Works a treat.
