I always go as slow as she will do to maintain steerage. I put the throttle at about 1100 RPM and take in and out of gear as needed.

After breaking my wrist trying to hold somebody's bow off a dock and jammed into a piling, I no longer will take risks with boats. If it hits the dock, then it hits the dock. The dock and the boat are easier to repair than my body.
