Congrats on a successful maiden voyage and docking.
Regarding close quarters maneuvering, ie. engines only no rudder, in open water next trip try a 360 turn using engines in fwd/rev, then add rudder on full lock, and see if it turns faster and tighter, mine sure does. Docking you may be too busy to use rudder, but there are times it can help.
