Tried and tested method, which might not be correct.
Firstly you need atleast 2 people.
Take a bow and stern line from the next boat out and pass to someone on shore.
Cast yourself off from the shore and boat outside you. Remeber to leave "His" lines on "his" boat.
Slip out either ahead or astern under the bow/stearn line of the other boat(s). Handing your boat out may be wiser than using the engine if there are people moored ahead and behind you.
The crew on the shore pulls boat(s) in to the shore as you go, and secures them as he would his own. Breast lines, springs and fenders as required.
The crew the returns any borrowed lines to where they came from, and clambers over every one to get to where you are lying outside the raft.

Just an additional note. You should always cross over the stern of a boat, never over the bows. You can get a quick lesson in human biology if you fall thro' an open forehatch.

Good post Mark disagree with one thing. I was always taught that the stern of a Craft (Mobo or sail) is the "Private" area and always cross boat over bow, being aware that a fore hatch may be open

You are quite right. Stupid me. I was thinking of something else.

To be honest Jeff there's lots there in Whiteshoes' articulate post.
Oh and subsequent posts !

But I've seen each person has their idiosyncracies in mooring so he's got to work out his own way in the end. I'm no-one to give definitive advice .

I also prefer to learn by doing Can't beat a bit of kinaesthetic learning

Could always take a digi pic of adjacent boats after mooring up.. So if your rib isn't in pristine condition after getting back to it, and if the other boat has buggered off, at least you will have a piccy of the boat so you can let their toobs down next time..
