Thestar :

Well sorry to throw a spanner in the works so to speak I personally feel you are stating texted book methods of berthing procedures. Not the all-weather versions that should be mastered.
Let me try and explain with a current situation after several days on being marooned in my bolt hole from the relentless howling gales I did the opposite of what the texted books say! The secret is MASTER YOUR boats control like you learn to master your car or truck.

I detect a wee bit of over-confidence there.

Never claim that you have mastered anything when sailing.

In his own good time, old Neptune will get to hear of it and will reverse the roles.
