Floating Docks without finger

I need to know how high that floating dock is relevant to your bow or stern.

While a gang plank may be the answer it can''t have too steep a grade.

Assuming that your bow is 4 1/2'' high and the dock is 18" thats a 3 foot drop. So consider making a dock box with a few steps. The plank can go from the bow where you can hold onto the forestay.

Floating Docks without finger

In Europe I''ve seen split bow pulpits (railings on both sides with removeable bar in center)rigged with a gangplank or portable steps off the bow. Some had gangplanks so big that they had a davit/anchor crane on the foredeck to handle it. Can you leave something on the dock that you can pull out, or do you have to take plank/steps or whatever with you on board?

Floating Docks without finger

Our town Marina has floating docks without a finger slip. The traditional way is to back in between the pilings and access the boat from the stern. My sailboat has a reverse transom and is very difficult to handle in reverse. Does anyone have experience and recommendations for docking a sailboat bow in to this type of dock. How do you manage getting yourself and gear on and off the boat.
