Is yours single or twin screw? We have a single engine 40' TT that I'll be bringing back home from the boatyard in a week or 2 and I'd be happy to have you tag along and show you some of the quirks of docking, handling, etc if you want. I would involve about an hour between the boatyard & our dock. We're up the bay from Portsmouth 1 1/2-2 hours by car so I don't know if it would work out for you. Just a thought.
Depending on the sea conditions, you might be able to pick up a few obscenities you've never heard before... they sometimes come in handy, especially when single handling a single screw boat!
