My previous boat had the throttle and selector down low. As others have pointed out, slow and steady wins the race.

I did consider fashioning a longer, removable, handle extension to attach to the fwd/rev lever just for docking.

Being on a mooring, most of my docking is coming up alongside.

Getting into or out of a slip is something I do once or twice a year. It can be pretty nerve racking. Acting like a prairie dog while docking just ads to the mess.
