Gee! I wish for an easy slip! POOH
We been taking cruises on several tour boats ships. Most secure the mid ship line and power which sucks the boat into the dock, the stern line is secured next and finally the bow line. We use the mid line if possible most of the time. The trick is securing the line to the dock to be able to power against it. Being my wife is older and wiser she will not take that leap of faith?
