Re: Slip from Hell...
I had a near identical slip for years and I grew to like it. My plan was to enter the slip with a couple of fenders deployed on my port side and take the bow to the empty corner behind my slip. Here, I would step off the bow with an aft spring and a bow line in hand. It was simple to shove the bow back out and pull the stern in. I found, with the fenders in place, I could easily walk the boat back into the slip. When departing, having the bow pointed out, I kept a line from the bow to a warp around the starboard piling. By releasing this line last, I could turn into the wind if necessary, and easily motor out.
