I've got a line with a bumper in the middle that goes across my slip which will catch the boat before it hits the dock if I don't get it stopped in time. So far I haven't had to rely on it but I'm sure I'll come in too hot one of these days.

This post is made from recycled electrons

A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not why ships are built.

thanks again, everyone, for all of the adice and resources. I am really getting the hang of it now..and even practiced a few times over the weekend to make sure I was following them word for word.

Now, if I could only get some tips on how to make sandwichs while keeping the sails full

helps having a mate aboard ... to do that for you ... but that rather flies in the face of 'single handing' ...

if it hasnt been mentioned before, make some guidlines tapered at the the bow. this helps me dramatically as i am usually alone. it gives just enough hold to keep from drifting into the other boat next to me.
