I single hand my DeFever 41' almost exclusively. It's all I've ever done. It can be tricky as my slip is perpendicular to the way the wind predominantly blows so I typically start turning early and let the wind push me until I'm almost in line, and then bump the engines into forward a few times until I'm in my slip. I get a few scuff marks from time to time but those come off with a Mr Clean magic eraser or rubbing compound. FYI, I am 36 years old and have been boating for 2.5 years, and this is my 1st/only boat. No thrusters, just twin engines.
