Re: Difficult docking

I'm guessing Riggy isn't serious, if they are in NC, but does give an idea. Subletting out that spot, even if at a loss, and going elsewhere, may have an outsized impact on your enjoyment this season.

It was a real buzz kill, when I once had a slip that was always difficult to return to. All slips have a wind direction or condition that is tough, but that old slip was tough 100% of the time and I had a parallel neighbor with a brand new boat. We both had to back in faster than we preferred to maintain control and then pour on the forward thrust to stop before hitting the back of the slip. Fenders on three sides of the boat, port, starboard and transom. It didn't always work. Very stressful.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
