x100. I found it is easier to have the inexperience person to take the helm, especially if you have the autohelm. I use hand signal to communicate with the helms-lady especially for docking or picking up the mooring ball.

No screaming, no yelling, and no cursing. If we miss, just go around. It is not the end of the world. I am amazed how many evenings have bee ruined because of docking the damn boat.
