How do you get off the boat
On my recent trip to Orient Point NY I stayed at a marina that was obviously setup for power boaters.
We got lucky because as we were coming in he took one look at my bow pulpit and stern rail and wife and dog and give me his only floating dock.
If however he wasn't so nice I'm not sure what I would have done.
Probably pull the boat in so the bow pretty much touched the dock. Taken off the anchor and tried to get on and off the boat from the bow.
Have you ever had a slip where it was very hard to get on and off the boat?
Any creative ideas.
I did have a 6' 2x6 I carry for a a fender board I might have been able to use for something.
Kind of narrow for a gangway.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
