    Old thread but always a timely issue...

    I am in an East/West slip with North/South current backed in and Port to...wind is generally from SE to SW so it helps even when there is fowl current. In these conditions I have no problem docking the boat by myself. But when the wind is out of the North'ish and the current is flowing South that's when I sit on or in the boat and turn on the TV. There's no way I can hold a 38 beam to the wind and current...just sayin'...

      I also have fenders, mid ship and stern lines at the ready. When solo and docking against wind or current my mid ship line is my priority line. With the mid ship line secured the boat can only articulate so far. Now I can secure the stern line, adjust the mid ship line and add a bow line if I feel it’s needed.
