Killer Tiller

Picked up a Morgan with a tiller. Sweet boat but docking can be a killer. I used to have a wheel so I''m new at the dynamics of the outboard and the tiller when docking. But, they seem to fight during those crucial moments when docking tightly with currents and wind.

Does anyone out here lock the tiller down and use just the swivel of the outboard to dock? I''ve seen the Tiller Tamers etc.

I just wonder if it would be easier to lock the tiller down when close to the dock (and use the rotation of the outboard) then unlock when underway. Thanks
