I've a fair amount of doing the "ferry" when on canoes trips. I can honestly say I've used the current in the river here (tidal Delaware riv) to easily move my O30 across the river. under sail or power it works well. I don't know about in tight quarters however although I've used it a few times to pull into finger slips by turn the boat 90* port or starboard and with a slight turn to the current the boat would ease very slowly in and against the finger slip.
