Re: Sailing into the slip
Our last spot I could sail into and did many times. First out of necessity, but eventually just because I could and I enjoyed it.
Now I think I could if I really had to, but its a tight spot with a BIG nice boat sharing the same space. The risks of damaging the other boat is what stops me now. If he's out sometime, I would definitely give it go.
I too get the fact that people have sailed around the world for a long time without engines, but if they had to dock in my slip with that much money crammed into a small space they might just anchor out!
If I HAD to sail in to my current spot I would, but I'd likely dock at an easier place first and round up a few helping hands on the dock. Lots of people around most days to lend a hand and lower the risk of hitting my neighbor.
