This works very well with twin inboards as well. Sterning into a tight slip with say a 15-20 mph cross wind and narrow fairway, is best done backing with the stern into the wind, and then laying the downwind rub rail up against a downwind spring piling and then backing down while pulling the bow around to line up with the slip opening. Done slowly, nothing gets broken and there is little drama. This becomes second nature with experience. Until you learn to perform this maneuver, docking is an adventure.
