Captain, I think it's less about the " Boat" and more about the engine, Prop, Prop-rotation and prop pitch. Wind direction and strength will play a part. Yes, it's a full keel, so a little less responsive, or agile, in tight quarters.

Also, are you in a slip? Bow in? Stern in? Or, are you on a T-dock or end dock, with vessels fore and aft of you?

Generally speaking the use of spring lines can be helpful. Powering against a fore or aft spring can help start you moving in a direction of choice. But a little more info would be helpful.
