axius is way cool...but I'm not sure how effective it is in a high wind/current like we get ...but docking at kingston was a snap for him....like you ..mine's a controlled crash each time...so his was just like driving a huge boat....and he made it look easy...

just got back from the boat, tony was there getting his boat washed and rigged....so...everybody had a good time...sorry you didn't join us for the weekend in kingston...

yeah, we were lamenting our choice to recover here at home yesterday afternoon, no doubt. Beautiful. Today, both of us are feeling markedly better, so it was likely the right decision at least.

We helped a guy and his wife dock up at Fishermans Bay this summer. 50 footer with her on the rear deck holding both ends of a line and smiling... him standing on the bow with a little remote control in his hand that powered the bow/aft thrusters. He managed to hit the dock harder than I've ever seen after the third attempt. No current, little wind. Technology is nice, but nothing beats practice, practice practice.

So, any pics?
