Course Outline

  1. Cast off the stern line. Move and secure the bow line to a mid-boat position on the dock. Make sure fenders are in place on the bow.
  2. Put the boat into forward gear briefly, and turn the steering wheel hard toward the dock. Increase speed slowly until the stern is well clear of the dock.
  3. Cast off the bow line. Back out slowly until you have room to shift into forward and turn away from the dock.
