"nobody on board drifting slowly further away"
Try motoring out on power, then just before getting off, put the gear into reverse, (practice will tell you exit speed & reverse revs) boat floats out, & whilst you close up, will gently come back to you, engage forward gear into next lock & repeat. Due to the shape of lock mouths the boat will always be within reach when it gets back to the "mouth".
