I agree, I never understood why the throttle was on the starboard side on a port prop walk, but it sounds like a good place for you except when the wind is pushing you hard.
I think that I would have a port spring line prepped for those times that the N wind was blowing. Use it to control your momentum and stop the boat on the port pier and then pull her across for your starboard tie. Or rig a starboard spring and use that to let the motor pull you to starboard from your port spring.
