This does not apply in all situations, but, when I want to pull up to my pin I throttle in reverese. While at the controls I watch over the side or transom at the water to see if I am still moving. I do have to take my eyes off the target for a few moments. Once stopped, I can pop it out of gear and go forward to grab the mooring.
