I think your plan will work fine. You can even stand in front of the wheel and steer facing the stern. Once you get moving you should be able to keep the RPM low and then once you're lined up ( take a nice wide turn @ 4 ) and moving straight back into the slip..put it in neutral. You can use a little forward if you need to slow.
