SD and Davidpm have it right. Practice, in benign conditions, and SPRING LINES!!!!!!!!! If you come in, SLOWLY, and get a mid ships spring on a post or cleat, YOU are in control. If you come in fast, and jump off to pull the boat, you are SCREWED!
Practice with spring line, and you will be fine. I am more nervous today when someone wants to help then when I don't have help. You really have to trust someone a lot to hand them a line, because they can be great or horrible....and it is you boat that will feel the pain.
