Stupid launching

OK, I am not completely new to sailing (3yrs Catalina 22), but, I regularly have trouble launching from my mooring pin. The complications are: Tight mooring field, unreliable outboard, weeds in mooring (we launch with swing keel up to keep from fouling). So, what are some good ways to launch from the pin and avoid other boats?
