Question Um. Full Astern?

I miss the Old Mount, yet have never seen it!

Another one, a copy, needs to tour the lake again.

Wait. Isn't she coming into the dock kinda fast?

Default Wham! Bam!

Yes, too fast. She crashed into the dock, burned, and then sank.

Default Oops!

Sorry. Disregard the above. Just a dumb, belated April Fool's joke.

Guess that I have too much time on my hands.

It appears to me that she is backing down with the paddle on her port side. This makes sense for that landing.

In fact I would say the mount is dead ahead maybe even a little left rudder with the wheel astern to kick the ass in, then take neutral let momentum put her starboard side alongside.
Hope your deckhands get your lines promptly lest you be made a fool!

Default coming in hot

She has a friendly wind on the dock and should also have some port rudder and thrust astern. Until she makes contact withe the dock and gets a spring line to the dock. Then switch her thrust to slow ahead with full port rudder to hold her on the dock. Care is needed since her wheels were not independent - single cylinder and crank - wheels always working together. That's why she had the big center rudder. For example, if one wished to hold her starboard side against the dock, the engine would be set ahead slow and the rudder full port. The starboard ahead would naturally hold her on. The port wheel would tend to move her off the dock, so the rudder would have to be full port to deflect the thrust of the port wheel.
