I would run parallel with boat dock heading into wind (vary close to dock 6ft should) as bow get to your slip turn bow away from slip pull into neutral....then drift stern around half way across slip ...pull into reverse and crank wheel towards dock........this is all about timing.... in my alpha drive is slow to react I would be going into reverse(after the bow swing out) before my stern got to the slip or even to slip.

Best advice take a helper on an off day and practice and hour or two. I would try to let the wind push my bow. Staying vary close to the dock would be my key.

Thanks to everyone for the replies and suggestions. Good tips by most...;)

I'll leave you with a pic of our day out Sunday. NO wind so no trouble getting the back in the slip that day!

Here's to a few more boating days...and being able to post pics upright!
