the final drawing is inaccurate , with the bow line in that position the boat can drift backwards. the bowline needs to pull from the forward pier to amidships on the boat for best results.

+mark duncan Mark, thanks for your comments. Emphasis is to attach other docking lines before you shift the engine to neutral or move the wheel or tiller to the centerline. Otherwise, you could slingshot off the pier.
