We used to have to teach the newbies on the schooner not to fend off with their bodies. At a 100 tons we weren't sure the dock would stop us when all hell was braking loose.

As I tell my crew!! Never jump from the boat to the dock. I will bring the boat close enough for you to step off. Never jump! Period!

And as you can see from the first post on this thread the reason why.

G'day fellas.

Glad to hear that YOU ALL take care when docking.
What happened to Simon last sunday made me realize that pain and suffering is always close by.

He will be out of action for a few months at least.
Made me feel a little sick when I saw him there but I think from the number of members that witnessed it, a little more safety is about to come into the club from now on.

Up until then it had been a beautiful day.

Jim.

Giu-

It depends... jumping off my boat onto a floating dock isn't a problem... they're not too different in height... Jumping off of some of the bigger monohulls, where the height difference is more noticeable can be a serious problem.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Our slip requires a ladder to go from the boat to the slip.
No jumping. We have to grab our dock lines with our boat pole.

When approaching a transient mooring, you never know what you might find.

A mistake we make is that the person with the dock lines is standing either too far forward or too far aft. I keep telling them to stand amidship. I can get the fat part of the boat close and you step off.

I too have gotten close and we start to drift off. I yell, "quick, jump.!"
Opps my bad.
