Like Wandering Star, I try to think ahead, have a backup plan.

I take my time, move slowly around the boat...I will often heave-to, well outside a harbor and clear of any other boats... to prepare fenders and docklines so that I'm not trying to do that in a crowded harbor with traffic.

Handheld VHF radio at the helm. Stern anchor ready in an emergency..
I can deploy the roller furling pretty quickly from the safety of the helm if need be.
