Great diagrams.

Do you have port or starboard prop walk? I assume port. Remember if you shift to neutral, prop walk disappears.

You will likely need .5 knots to maintain steerage way. Wind could be a big issue.

You do not have enough space ahead of you slip to get sufficient steerage way.

You have a good plan.
