How to Spring Off a Tee Head

This is a follow up blog on last week’s How To Spring On To A Dock.

If you like it – please “like it” – thanks it really helps us grow.

Once you’ve jammed your self into a tight fuel dock, now how do you get out?

Pretty simple. Just back out – but use a forward spring line and prop wash on the rudder to lever the stern of the boat out. Once it is out far enough, center the rudder and engage reverse. Make sure you have fenders positioned properly.

This and countless other tips and exercises are embedded into the Maneuvering a Sailboat Under Power Course

How confident are you at maneuvering your boat in high winds when the wind and current aren’t playing nice? How much would a scratch cost on some one elses boat? How much is confidence and self esteem worth these days? Both answers are more than $39 I bet.
