Tell me about tight slips maneuvering. I'm at 44' overall and its 38' from the piling to the Pier behind.
My best advice is don't be afraid to use some throttle! Get some water moving over the rudder for steerage and use the wind and prop pull to your advantage as well as the pilings.
Doing this I was able to dock yesterday in 20+ winds with two inexperienced persons and myself fairly easily and most importantly with no damage.
