IF every boat owner were honest, we would admit that docking brings on anxiety.
Once safely docked, all lines adjusted, water hose onboard, hooked to shore power, it is 'decompression' time, maybe even a nap.

I知 not sure yet what the pecking order will be. I guess you know we can have up to 4 wives here in Turkey so I might just get myself a full crew.

Now that is funny. Of course, it will be an unpaid crew too.

With a BT and ST in each hull, twin throttles and someone on the anchor for Med mooring I will need all the hands I can muster.

Seriously guys. Please stop sending me PM’s and CV’s. I’m not looking for any additional crew and, if it makes any difference, I don’t really have 4 wives I only have 2. So lets get this thread back firmly on the subject of fore and aft thrusting and no more nonsense PLEASE.

Well, the discussion has been all over the place so I will pose my question here to hear your responses and reasoning.

Ships wheel: Destroyer type or the old fashion type and why ??

How close do you need to get the boat to get or toss a line from the boat around a piling or a cleat and back to the boat?
What is a Dock Boy???

LOL. Funny answer.

Why are some people/dock boys trying to catch the line on their chest instead of a sideways outstretch arm? I guess they do not like their glasses and or have a desire to get hit in the face with a line.

I agree. Which is why as soon as the lines are secured, the Admiral and I immediately grab cold beers. We hand out beers to anyone who was involved with catching lines and assisting us. Then we pound down our beers, breath a sigh of relief, then commence to cleaning.

Gotta get shore power on and the water hose first. Then you and the Admiral can empty the beer cooler.

I do not serve alcohol underway. I may get into a spot where I need help and I do not want the help drunk.

Drinking and drunk are 2 different issues I sorely wish people could separate....

I guess not into todays PC world.....

Guess the days of restraint and responsibility are lost on most.

For restraints, I still use duct tape.
