scotthenry is on a distinguished road
34foot cat, windward slip, SF Bay (means frequent 20+kts into the slip). The engine (outboard) controls were no-where near the hull-side helm. After some practice, it was just so much easier to use a spring line to stop the boat than to try to get some assist from the outboard in reverse... When it worked, I left it in neutral but always came in under bare-poles.
