Use your imagination, but practice making the boat do exactly what you want it to.

Now, once stopped, which way is the boat going? Many people are too cautious, and try to maneuver the boat so slowly that the wind or tide catches the boat and they lose control anyway. Yet a steep four foot chop can be downright dangerous or make your time on the water miserable. If there is too much traffic, don't be in a big hurry to join the fray. Is it turning precisely on its axis or not? If you have a place where the tide or current runs strong, then just take your boat to that place.

We saw it coming but did not run. Possibly you've got the bows of other boats sticking way out past the pilings, with nice big anchors hanging off bow pulpits just daring you to make a mistake. Let's face it! Obviously, you can only back straight in when there is no wind or tide, or at least not until you become very adept. Waves are peculiar things.
