Re: upraded my 22' for a 30' and now afraid to leave the slip

Put a line across your slip to keep you off the other side. I tied mine from the dock on a middle cleat to the piling between hour boats. It cuts at an angle across the slip and is very effective at guiding my boat in when needed. That one line has completely removed the stress and I have come in at come bad angles!

Went from 26' to 36' and it sure felt like an aircraft carrier when I got it. Now I think it's easier to handle using a spring is the secret.

Re: upraded my 22' for a 30' and now afraid to leave the slip

practice with the boat out in the open.
The milk jugs idea is great. Learn what the wind does to your boat when moving at slow speeds and at different angles. sometimes the wind is your friend too when docking.

I went from small to bigger boats and it only seemed to get easier I thought.
To me it seemed the mass of the boat helped make it more stable in maneuvers. slow but steady.
Now I actually enjoy backing up our 47 footer into our finger slip.

Awesome tip, going to try that myself!

Have we scared off the OP? I'm thinking he may not want to dock next to me now.

It's only been 20 hours! Maybe he has a job, or family, or life? Unlike you bums!

Re: upraded my 22' for a 30' and now afraid to leave the slip

I almost always single hand in fact I prefer to dock by myself,i put a long dock line on the bow cleat and a slightly shorter one on the stern,just before backing into my slip i arrange these lines so I can grab them at the right moment,as soon as my boat is about 1/3 in I jump onto the dock or finger and guide the boat the rest of the way in ofcoarse prop walk,the wind and current needs always be a consideration
