We have finally moved to a berth which is big enough for the boat! Much less stressful to have 6 feet between us and the next boat, rather than 6 inches. We are also port to which is the side our engine controls are, so I can see the pontoon as we come in. The prevailing wind pushes us on and the pontoon is long enough for us to tie the stern on properly and get off the boat without jumping into a huge pile. Fantastic!
