I single hand our Selene 47, and before this boat, for many years our Willard 40 sedan. Both the Willard and now the Selene are equipped with Side-Power lanyard type remote controllers. Super easy to install, just plug and play! It can be scary to step off the boat when soloing, but with a midship line in one hand and lanyard bow thruster remote in the other, I have as much control as I need. If a strong breeze is pushing me off the dock, I never fight it -- just exit and look for a "friendlier" landing or a nearby anchorage to drop the hook.
