    Carman,

    Love your first mate. Seems she has the knowledge and ability to be a great addition to your crew . I know you use your aft anchor in many of these baltic sea anchorages. Of course deploying the aft anchor at the correct time is critical and in looks like that this time it got fouled with a stray line. It's not obvious just how you corrected this. Did you have to restart the whole process after you freed the aft anchor line or did you just back up a bit on the bow lines and use the aft anchor to keep you from swinging into the sailboat to your port side. Doesn't look like any wind would present a problem with that and since you really don't have any significant current to deal with so this might work well. For us that have to deal with the latter it would mean a whole re-anchoring scenario.

    Thanks for the post, always enlightening to see how others handle this in their own waters.

      I loosened the front lines from the boat, backed out and laid in the anchor at the right place (that is, the bottom) and then I went in and took the ropes that were already strapped.
      if it had blown, then I had known that the anchor did not take. but it went well as luckily was.

          I have a few thoughts watching this, looking at the flags it seems as though when you are entering the slip that you are taking the wind on your port side.

          I would have swung much wider and gone further up wind, then let the wind push you back into the slip, once it had a hold of your bow I noticed you really had to work at driving her further up wind, where as it would have been much easier to be managing a slip back downwind.

          That marina is a pretty tight space, can't say that I would want to go in there.

          The 2nd dock that you finally went into went pretty smoothly.

            I do not remember my thoughts. The first one is too narrow, the boat does not fit, and there I go to the wind which is easiest. The other one is windier and swings more, I saw it earlier but didn't want to take it, because there it is swinging and it is difficult with so much wind. The boat on the starboard side is so long that it was easier to go in with the wind. I have cut away 20-30 minutes when I go around looking for a place. the staff does not help to look. At the beginning of the movie I call in and ask if I can take one of the not the places, but they are booked.

                Hi. This year I speak a lot of Swedish in my films. I'm curious what you think about it? 75% of my viewers are Swedes. only 3% are from the United States

                    Did that with port bow line. Sheared the prop saver. Luckily buddy boaters had the tools I lacked to remove it.

                      I always make sure my bow lines are not long enough to get in my props.

                          this is the line for dinghy. I usually do all the work myself and then have such a short tamp to the dinghy that it can not get into the propeller. this year I have help on the boat and then it was wrong. the line gets stuck before the movie starts and I drive all the way with just one motor. the boat cannot steer to port !!!

                            Gotcha CarMan. I had an issue last weekend where I lost my stbd engine and had to enter the marina and dock on one engine, too. Tricky!

                              I have driven one engine before, then she has steered a little but not good. this time the dinghy was stuck in the propeller and braked, so it did not steer to port at all. In addition to this, the wind blows 15 knots in the same direction I drive
