Re: Difficult docking
Is there current inside the slips? It should, at least, be reduced. This may catch you by surprise, and will feed into the next one.
If your bow is super getting blown off (which you can fight if you're going in forward but every boat is different), going in reverse (bow pointed in the direction you're moving over ground, moving backwards through the water) will keep your boat in about the right orientation, but your rudder will work much less effectively, as your speed over water will be about a knot or two, as opposed to 4-5 if you're going in forward (bow pointed towards the top of the photo).
