When you go to sea, do you put all your warps away in lockers? Why not keep a longish warp, maybe one of the springs, neatly coiled and secured to the pushpit with a clove hitch and two half hitches? You now have a line which can be readied quickly in an emergency.
By the same token, I always have a bucket secured to the pushpit as well; but should I have an engine failure when close quarter manoeuvring, I have a simple brake to hand. Just chuck it over the side, not forgetting to hold onto the lanyard, and pull the bucket towards the boat. It will slow you down a bit and maybe lessen the crunch. Its also to hand if any of your crew feel queasy.
