Mastering the Med Moor
"Imagine the exultation! I finally got it, how to execute the granddaddy of maneuvers under power—the Mediterranean mooring. After this first trip to Greece, propellers, rudders, and docks never intimidated me again, and it has led to confidence and skill in all other docking situations ever since. In fact, docking has become something I look forward to. The more crowded the harbor, the smaller the spot, or the stronger the wind, it all means a greater challenge, and to be able to embrace with such glee something that once terrified me is an incredibly liberating feeling. Of course the thing that still makes me squirm is the idea of working in a tollbooth.
