Re: Solo Leaving Oversized Slip w/ Pilings

This image provides a good way to get in and out but I wouldn't use it for mooring. Pulling perpendicular to the center of the 2 long lines, will provide very little resistance until the boat has moved a long way to the side.

But for getting in and out with such a small boat, you can simply drop the other lines and then grab the side lines on the upwind side and walk her back before motoring away (reverse this coming in).

If allowed, consider adding hooks (positioned so they won't snag the boat) and coil up the stern lines for easy retrieval with a boat hook upon return.

PS: in the long term, see if you can get a slip better matched to the size of your boat if you can do it reasonably. You can do it but oversize slips are often a pain.
