      To date, I have been fortunate enough to have company (wife, niece)
      who have kindly volunteered to tie the lines. If I were alone,
      well, it would be a sorry sight.

      Part of the problem is that the slip is rather narrow and close
      to the shore (in the photo, I'm just out of it, reversing.) The
      speed has to be low, so steering is difficult. When docking, a
      burst of reverse has often been needed. But it has to be timed
      just right...
