  11. If wind or current is pushing you at the dock, there's no reason to hit the dock at an angle. I would definitely say throw out a couple of fenders just for your boat's sake, but coming in at an angle is only really appropriate when you're getting blown away from the dock. You should be just nestling up with your boat parallel to the dock, and eventually you should be able to pretty much "parallel park" the boat between two fixed points on the dock. Nobody ever talks about the bow moving across the water. It is not fixed like a car's tires. The bow will continue to move sideways to starboard or port (depending on the direction one is going) even when doing the classic, "turn the wheel the opposite direction and put it in reverse." Eventually the bow will catch up, but you need to leave enough space between you and the dock to allow for this.
